Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the coating: In a medium bowl, mix together the quinoa, thyme, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Beat the eggs in another medium bowl.

For the lamb: Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Season the lamb with salt and pepper. Dip the lamb chops in the egg and then coat with the quinoa mixture, pressing lightly to help the coating stick. Add half the lamb chops to the pan and cook until light golden, about 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil to the pan and cook the remaining chops. Allow the chops to rest for 5 minutes.

For the sauce: In a small bowl, mix together the creme fraiche, maple syrup, and thyme until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

To serve, arrange the lamb chops on a platter and serve the sauce alongside.
