Ingredients

Fava Bean and Feta Salad:

Directions

For the lamb: Put the salt, coriander seeds, sugar, and red pepper flakes into a mortar and pestle and crush to blend. Place the lamb chops on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Liberally season the chops on both sides with the spice blend. Allow to sit in the refrigerator, covered, for at least 8 to 24 hours before grilling, if possible. This will act as a quick cure, adding more flavor to the lamb when it's cooked.

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.

Put about 1/2 to 1 cup blended oil into a small bowl. Use the small bunch of mint as a brush and brush the oil onto one side of each lamb chop. Place the oiled-side of the lamb face down on the hot grill. Brush the second side or top of the lamb chop with oil and allow to cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat reaches 125 to 130 degrees F for medium-rare to medium, about 3 to 5 minutes per side, turning once. Allow the chops to rest briefly before serving.

For the Fava Bean and Feta Salad: Fill a large bowl with ice and water. Place a large pot of water over high heat and bring to a boil. Add salt to taste. Add the fava beans to the water and blanch for about 40 to 50 seconds, or to al dente. Immediately plunge the beans into the ice bath to cool. Once cooled, remove the second shell and set the shelled beans aside.

To a bowl add, the shallot, garlic, and season with salt to help bring out the moisture. Add the juice of 2 lemons, sliced Fresno peppers, 1/2 to 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, and freshly ground black pepper and taste. Add the olives, shelled fava beans, crumbled feta and torn mint leaves. Toss to combine. Taste for seasoning.

For each serving, place 2 lamb chops onto a plate. Top with the feta salad, a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and zest of 1/4 lemon.
