Grilled Lamb Chops
Wonderful flavor from some simple ingredients and a quick marinade. I will certainly be making this again and again. I grilled these outside on a gas grill and the timing was perfect!

|2||, large garlic cloves, , crushed|
|1 tablespoon||fresh rosemary leaves|
|1 teaspoon||fresh thyme leaves|
|pinch cayenne pepper|
|sea, coarse salt|
|2 tablespoons||extra-virgin olive oil|
|6||lamb chops, about 3/4-inch thick|
In a food processor fitted with a metal blade add the garlic, rosemary, thyme, cayenne, and salt. Pulse until combined. Pour in olive oil and pulse into a paste. Rub the paste on both sides of the lamb chops and let them marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator and allow the chops to come to room temperature; it will take about 20 minutes.
Heat a grill pan over high heat until almost smoking, add the chops and sear for about 2 minutes. Flip the chops over and cook for another 3 minutes for medium-rare and 3 1/2 minutes for medium.
