  • In a bowl, combine the chops with the marinade ingredients. Cover and leave in the fridge for 1 hour (overnight is even better)
  • Heat a BBQ and grill the chops for around 5 minutes each side (depending on thickness) until the lamb is cooked, but still pink inside. Remove form the heat and rest.

  • Arrange the lamb on a serving platter and sprinkle liberally with the za'atar before scattering over the onions. Squeeze over more lemon juice and lastly season with a bit more salt & pepper.
