Rub: Crush the garlic and chop the mint and rosemary very fine. Add the pepper, lemon zest and oil and mix together. Spread the rub over the lamb chops and leave to marinade for at least 15 minutes.
Preheat the pan.
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together. Cover Slaw with cling film and chill in fridge.
Cook the lamb chops or steaks for 3-4 minutes turning half way
Serve lamb chops with chilled Slaw to the side. Slice the Lime that you took the zest from and serve lime slice with the chops. Sprinkle with fresh chopped mint leaves
Brian’s Top Tips: Use this rub recipe and spread the rub on a half leg of lamb or double the rub recipe for a full leg of lamb and roast the lamb. Great with some minted yoghurt also.
Best Use of Leftovers: Mix some leftover lamb with the Slaw and fill a pitta pocket or wrap for perfect healthy lunch.
