Rack of Lamb - Appetizers #1

Ok it is getting to be my favorite season of the year. Football season! That means Sunday afternoon parties with guys, a couple of beers and some great food to eat. Not really a meal just foods to grab off the grill and eat with our hands. Burgers, dogs, wings, chips, and many more foods that we probably should not be eating. However we can always sneak a little gourmet in there every now and then. I am starting a series of posts with gourmet apetizer recipes. I hope your next football party is a tasty one.

On a side note I am calling it now the Idianapolis Colts will have another outstanding year!

2 racks of lamb, cut into single chops and frenched.
Olive oil
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 small bunch of fresh mint (garnish)

Preheat your grill

Lay the chops in a single layer in a baking dish.

Mix the cumin, coriander, paprika, salt and pepper together and sprinkle generously over the chops. Make sure you turn them over and sprinkle the other side. Then drizzle with olive oil.

Make sure your grill is hot then cook the chops 3 - 4 minutes on each side. Serve on platter and garnish with the mint.

These look very appetizing. Would go really well on our Aussie bbq. I would also suggest to serve them with a greek style garlic yogurt dip and some fresh lemon squeezed over the top. And beer, lots of beer.

I agree with both of you. That Greek style garlic yogurt sounds good. So does the lots of beer.

Elle, I am trying to make do with the preseason games but it is just not the same.
