Marinated in a delicious combination of rosemary, garlic, lemon, and olive oil, these Mediterranean Lamb chops are a great addition to your Summer meals!
I’ve always wanted to make lamb chops, but for some reason I was always scared–Little did I know that lamb is rather simple to cook! In the Dominican Republic it is not very common to eat this delectable meat, however Lamb has always been one of those exotic meat (at least for me) that I eat every time I get the opportunity.
For many cultures sheep meat or Lamb is very popular. In fact, Lamb is one of the earliest proteins consume by humans. In the Caribbean is more common to eat goat meat instead of sheep; both meats have a similar flavor and are seasoned the same way.
Garlic, rosemary and olive oil are very common ingredients in Mediterranean cuisine and they go really well with lamb.
