1 tbsp Garam masala

1 tbsp Ground cumin

1 tsp Ground red chili powder or 1/2 tsp cayenne powder

1 1/2 tsp Fine sea salt

12 American lamb chops (1in each)

1/4 cup Olive oil

2 Limes, quartered & cut into slices


1Mix the spices from the garam masala to the salt in a small bowl.

2Pat the lamb chops dry with clean paper towels. Rub the seasoning over both sides of the lamb chops and place them in a tray, cover and let sit for at least 30 minutes (maximum 1 hour) at room temperature.

3When ready to grill, heat the grill and clean the grates. Drizzle the olive oil over the chops. When the grates are hot, place the chops on the hot grates and cook on each side for about 3 to 3-1/2 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 145F/63C (rare) or 160F/70F (well-done). Remove from grill allow to rest covered for 5 minutes, then transfer to a serving platter. Serve with the lime wedges on the side.
