Lamb Chops with Harissa-Yogurt Sauce

  • FAST

These delectable chops take just minutes to grill—a little more time than it takes to make the sauce, a hot-and-cool combination of spicy harissa and Greek yogurt.

  1. 1 cup plain Greek-style yogurt
  2. 1 1/2 tablespoons harissa
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 8 lamb rib chops, about 1 inch thick
  6. Finely grated lemon zest, for serving
  1. Light a grill. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt with the harissa and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Season the lamb chops with salt and pepper and grill over high heat, turning once, about 4 minutes for medium-rare. Sprinkle the lamb chops with lemon zest and serve with the yogurt sauce.
