Chermoula Marinated Lamb Chops

Main ingredients
1 and 1/2 tablespoons cumin seed, lightly toasted and ground (or 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of ground cumin)

1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 teaspoon Honey

3–4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

1 cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

1 cup Italian flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

juice of 1 lime

4-pound rack of lamb, frenched

Prepare the Lamb Chops
Combine all of the ingredients, besides the lamb, in a food processor or blender and process until fully combined into a sauce. Taste and adjust salt and sweetness to your liking.

Place the lamb chops in an oven-safe baking dish or roaster. Pour about half the sauce over the lamb chops, making sure they are fully and evenly coated. Cover the dish tightly with foil or a lid and marinate at room temperature for one to two hours.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cook the lamb fat side up, uncovered, in the middle rack of the oven for 15 minutes. Then flip and cook for an additional 10 minutes for medium-rare lamb chops. (Cook longer if desired.)

Remove from the oven and cover with foil or lid. Allow the lamb chops to rest for 10 minutes so the juices can redistribute. Once rested, cut between each bone to serve as individual chops.

Serve with lime wedges and additional chermoula sauce for dipping.
