Spice-Dusted Lamb Chops with Cherry Tomatoes

  • TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  1. 1 1/2 tablespoons ground coriander
  2. 1 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
  3. 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  4. 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  5. 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  7. 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  8. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  9. Eight 12-ounce lamb loin chops, about 1 1/2 inches thick
  10. Salt
  11. Vegetable oil, for brushing
  12. 2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
  13. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  1. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a small bowl, combine all of the spices. Season the lamb chops with salt, rubbing it into the meat. Rub each chop all over with a scant teaspoon of the spice dust. Let the chops stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Brush the chops all over with vegetable oil and grill over a medium-hot fire or in the grill pan over moderate heat, until crusty and medium rare, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to a platter and let rest for about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss the cherry tomatoes with the remaining spice dust. In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the cherry tomatoes, sprinkle with salt and cook over moderately high heat, tossing, until just hot, about 1 minute. Serve at once with the chops.
Notes Variation Use the spice dust on grilled or broiled chicken or pork, or tossed with sautéed vegetables.
