  • 1 kilogram (about 2 pounds) lamb chops
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh spearmint leaves
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne, or hot paprika, optional


  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the herbs, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and spices. Add the lamb chops and mix well to coat the meat evenly.
  3. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the lamb chops. For best results, allow the lamb to marinate for at least 5 to 6 hours, or as long as overnight. 
  4. Remove the lamb chops from the fridge and allow the meat to come to room temperature while you heat your grill. Lightly oil the grill rack or a grilling basket to prevent the meat from sticking
  5. When the coals are hot, arrange the meat on the rack or in the grilling basket without crowding. Plan to cook the lamb chops in batches if necessary.
  6. Cook the lamb chops for 5 to 8 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the cuts of meat. Be careful of flames from fat drippings, which can scorch the meat.
  7. Serve immediately, or hold the lamb chops warm for a short while by wrapping in aluminum foil and leaving to the side of the grill away from direct heat.
