  • 4 lamb chops about 2 1/2 lbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup chimichurri
  • 1 lb. shishito peppers

Season lamb well with salt and pepper.
Add chimichurri and coat the lamb well on all sides with the chimichurri.
Cover and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 30 minutes, however, overnight is best.
Brush a grill pan with olive oil and heat well.
Add lamb chops and grill on both sides, to desired doneness.
Garnish with more chimichurri, as desired.
In the same grill pan, add the shishito peppers.
Grill them on both sides for a few minutes until they become blistered.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper as desired.
Serve with Wild Rice Pilaf
  • Be sure to grill the lamb chops first before the shishito peppers so that you get the awesome caramelization flavor on the peppers.
