How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 425F
  • Put the potatoes, parsnips, red onion and garlic in a shallow baking dish.
  • Drizzle three tablespoons of the olive oil over the vegetables and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place in the oven and roast for 30 minutes.
  • Stir in the chilies five minutes before the end of cooking.
  • For the salsa, mix all the ingredients together and set aside.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a heavy-based frying pan.
  • Season the lamb chops, add to the pan and sear for 5-6 minutes on each side (you will need to cook them in batches).
  • Cover and keep warm.
  • Arrange the roasted vegetables and lamb chops in a serving dish.
  • Spoon the minted lime salsa over the chops and serve.

    The first time I ate Lamb was at The Elyssee Hotel in London, England. It was on the menu and this meat and potatoes kid from teh Mid-west had never eaten anything like that. Always desired a great Lamb recipe so I definitely will consider this one when I get the courage enough to revisit the past. Bon Apetite!

    This is a great recipe. Very simple but also clever. It was devised by a Master Chef contestant and is in their 2006 recipe book. There are a couple of other good lamb recipes in that book too.

    Now we're talkin .......;-)~ I love your root veggie roast. Great choice of veggies to go with the lamb and your minted salsa condiment sounds awesome. Worth more than a 5 that's for sure..
    Thanks for sharing... Jim

    A beautifully enticing recipe, michael. Lamb is such a treat when it is done right and this does it justice. Greatly imaginative and 5 forks.

    Where do you come up with this stuff, michael? OMG, here I am, failure-at-cooking-lamb person, thinking that this might just work for me! Maybe you have a career as a cooking teacher to the masses... I'd come, really, I would! I will be attempting this dish really, really soon. Thanks, michael! ^5...
