Ingredients

  • 8 lamb chops - French trimmed
  • 4 whole fresh peaches halved/pits removed
  • 1 bunch fresh mint

grilled peaches

  • 8 peach halves
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

seasoned mint salt rub

  • ½ cup kosher sea salt
  • cup ground black pepper
  • 15 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 lemons zested

parmesan mint pesto

  • 20 leaves fresh mint
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • ¼ cup parmesan grated
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil

Instructions

preheat your grill to 400 degrees

    make the parmesan mint pesto

    • In a mini food processor blend or finely chop on a cutting board; the mint, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan, and a pinch of salt. 
    • Slowly add the olive oil to the moving food processor, or mix in a small bowl if doing by hand.  
    • It should be thick and chunky like a paste, not drippy with olive oil. Set aside until your lamb chops and peaches are grilled.

    prepare the lamb chops and peaches

    • Make the seasoned mint salt rub; mix salt, black pepper, mint leaves, and lemon zest in a mini food processor or chop finely on board. 
    • Rub the lamb chops generously with the seasoned mint salt rub on both sides, set on a platter.
    • Wash and cut peaches in half, remove pits and place in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil, and add onto the platter.

    grill the lamb chops and peaches

    • Place the lamb chops and peaches (cut side down) on the grill, and close the lid for 4-5 minutes.
    • Carefully open the grill, and flip over the lamb chops and cook another 4-5 minutes until golden brown.
    • Check the peaches, and remove from grill once they have nice grill marks to a platter. 
    • Serve grilled lamb chops and grilled peaches arranged on a platter with parmesan mint pesto over each lamb chop.
    • Garnish with extra mint. Serve with cool drinks and a salad.
