Ingredients

  • 4 American Lamb loin chops
  • 1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black peppercorns
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked salt
  • 1 bay leaf

Preparation

  1. In a spice grinder (or coffee grinder), grind coriander, fennel, thyme, peppercorns, salt, and bay leaf until fine. Sprinkle spice rub over lamb chops.
  2. Bring chops to room temperature (at least 30 minutes out of the refrigerator) before grilling.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill chops for approximately 4 to 6 minutes per side. For medium-rare, remove lamb chops from heat when thermometer registers between 130° and 135° (or to desired doneness), being careful not to burn spice rub. Rest chops, lightly covered, for at least 10 minutes before serving.
