Spicy Lamb Chops & Pineapple Chutney

Lamb is a lovely meat to work with. It doesn't require a lot of flavor manipulation, it's soft and juicy when cooked right and has the right fat to flesh ratio when you choose the right pieces. I love the versatility myself. From stews to curries, baked or barbecued, its flavor just lifts and compliments whatever you make of it. This recipe is a little pan cooked magic, so I do hope you enjoy it.


4 Lamb Chops

3 tbsp Olive Oil

1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper

4 tsp Garlic and Parsley blend

3 tsp Onion Powder

2 tsp Smoked Paprika

2 tsp dried Sage

2 tsp Chili Flakes

2 tsp dried Thyme

3 tsp dried Basil

1/2 tsp Salt

Pineapple Chutney

2 cups fresh cubed Pineapple

1 tbsp fresh Fine Thyme

1 clove Garlic crushed

Salt and Black Pepper to taste


●Wash with vinegar water and trim excess fat from chops, then pat dry and set aside.

●To a small bowl add the herbs and spices and mix well.

●Using herbs coat rub both sides of each chop well with dry rub to ensure it is coated in rub and set aside to marinate for at least 10-15 mins.

●To a large skillet or thick based frying pan on medium heat add oil and allow to heat up.

●Add chops and allow to cook well on each side for approximately 7 mins on medium heat (this may take up to 10 mins both sides according to the thickness of your chops)

Note: lamb can become very tough if over cooked so monitor cooking time closely.

●Remove lamb from heat, cover and set aside.

●Add pineapple, water, garlic, thyme to blender or food processor and pulse several times to roughly break down the pineapple.

●Place in a small bowl and season with salt and black pepper (if pineapple is not very sweet naturally feel free to add a bit of sugar to it)

Note: you can make chutney prior to cooking lamb and place it to chill

Once both lamb and chutney are cooked feel free to pair those two up, serve and dig in. Most importantly do enjoy.

Note: If you want to try this with less spice you can omit the chili flakes and add 1 tsp more basil and 1 tsp more thyme to replace it.

Thanks for joining me for another session of Food Therapy. I hope to see you soon
