A delicious birthday meal, Spicy Lamb Chops with Potato and Green Goddess Sauce, for my husband which he thoroughly enjoyed!
8 lamb chops
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
Juice half a lemon
1 tsp Cajun spice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Sea salt, black pepper
1 tbsp Olive oil
Marinade the chops in the above and fry on a griddle pan for 4 minutes a side on medium/high heat in about 2 tbsp olive oil, turning once.
Lemon and Rosemary Potatoes
3 potatoes, peeled
Tbsp coarse salt
half a lemon
2 tbsp rosemary
1 tsp potato spice
1/2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
Parboil the potatoes in cold water with the salt and the juice of half the lemon (drop it in afterward).
Boil until tender. Drain in a colander.
Add seasoning. Heat oil in the oven.
When the oil is hot carefully add the potatoes and rosemary and roast just till crisp.
Green Goddess Sauce
1/2 bunch of mint leaves
1/2 bunch coriander
3-4 spring onions
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 piece anchovy fillet
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
Sea salt, black pepper
2 tbsp creme fraiche
1 tsp tarragon
In a food processor add spring onions, herbs, and anchovy and pulse until combined.
In a bowl whisk mayonnaise, buttermilk, creme fraiche, vinegar, and tarragon.
Add to processor and pulse adding the olive oil while mixing.
(You may want to add water to adjust consistency – I added about a 1/4 cup).
Season with salt and pepper.
* This recipe is a combination of three, I took off the internet which we all enjoyed.
You can if you want also add avocado.

This looks so good too! I should know better than to come to your site just before dinner.
Mwah – Heidi, hope you will have an opportunity to try this one as wsell.
Love lamb, and this dish seems perfect for spring here!
Hi Rebecca, Spring is in the air, and yes this will be a perfect meal for the family and friends. Please let me know what you think of it once made.
Sounds amazing! I love the semplicity of the ingredients! Lamb chops (And ribs) remind me of my beloved Rome! Thanks for sharing this recipe Esme! I am going to pin and tweet it 😉
Dear Silvia – I am elated that you like this recipe and thanks for pinning and RT. We visited Rome once and I just loved it!
It all sounds delicious, Esme. However… my husband – no mean cook- now does the honours in the kitchen (I cooked for 47 years…) and he’s now 90…so keeps to simpler dishes as he tires (but won’t let me “interfere…”) He makes sauces now and then but if the ingredients list is too long, he cuts corners…He did make a delicious fish in a white, slightly spicy sauce dish last night, but has to be in the mood. He also makes a tasty Thai chicken meal, yummy fish cakes and even yummier cherry, chocolate brownies, so I can hardly complain!! Best wishes. xx
Hi Joy – lucky lady to have your hubby do the cooking. I must admit that I am also lucky as my hubby also does 95% of the cooking, as he is semi-retired and works from home on contract from time to time, and as I am still working full time with many a day up to 12+ hours in the office, its awesome to come home to a cooked meal and not have the need to still start with an evening meal.
Joy, it will be awesome if you can and wish to share some of those awesome recipes from your husband with us. Why not do a guest post here on my blog and share it with the readers? Please let me know if you would be interested, I know I would love it….
Thanks I think I’ll make that for when my daughter comes for Easter. We both love lamb and lemon roasted potatoes yummy. The sauce sounds similar to the Aioli sauce I make for my partners salmon. I’ll post next time I make that dish.
Hi Beverley – I hope you will also like the lamb and lemon potatoes. Please do share the Aioli sauce with us. It’s always great to get to know and learn from others and variety is the spice of live
