Yield: 6 to 8 servings

A savory marinade makes these chops succulent and flavorful.


  • 8 lamb loin chops
  • Kosher or sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 12 kalamata olives, pitted and roughly chopped (optional)
  • Fresh mint, parsley, and basil (1 bunch each)


Season chops generously on both sides with salt and pepper. In a zip-top bag, combine garlic, olive oil, and herbs; then add chops and seal. Let chops marinate at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.

Heat grill to medium-high. Arrange lamb on grill directly over heat and cook 3—5 minutes on each side for rare or 5—7 minutes for medium-rare. Remove chops from grill and let rest 5 minutes.

Arrange half of herb sprigs on serving platter; lay chops on top and toss with olives. Nestle remaining sprigs between and around chops.
