Ingredients

Directions

  1. Combine the Nicoise olives, green olives, parsley leaves, olive oil, capers, anchovy fillets and garlic in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped and the mixture is tight. Set aside.
  2. Combine the lamb chops and half of the tapenade in a large bowl (reserve the remaining tapenade for garnish). Refrigerate and allow to marinate for 2 hours or up to overnight.
  3. Preheat the grill or a grill pan to medium-high. Lightly oil the grill grates.
  4. Add the lamb to the grill and turn up the heat slightly. Grill the lamb on each side for around 3 minutes for medium-rare, with an internal temperature of 130 to 135 degrees F. Serve with the reserved tapenade and a wedge of lemon.

Cook’s Note

To add more flavor to your lamb, use a paper towel and tongs to rub whole basil leaves on your grill or grill pan! This will perfume the olive oil before cooking.
