1In a large sealable plastic bag, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of the gremolata, salt, and pepper. Add the chops and toss in the bag to coat well with the marinade.

2Refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours. Remove and let come to room temperature for at least 30 minutes.

3In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add the chops in a single layer and cook to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side for medium rare.
