1 cup olive oils, plus more for brushing
1/2 cup aged balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
16 small lamb chops (about 3 1/2 pounds), frenched
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons lemon zest plus 2 tablespoons juice

Whisk together the oil, balsamic vinegar, parsley, rosemary, cumin, garlic and 2 tablespoons mint in a medium bowl. Place the lamb into a resealable plastic bag and pour half of the marinade over the lamb. Season with salt and pepper, seal the bag and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Add the lemon zest and juice and remaining 6 tablespoons mint to the remaining marinade and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat until very hot; lightly brush with oil.

Remove the lamb from the bag, letting the excess marinade drip off (discard this marinade). Season with salt and pepper. Grill the chops, turning once, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Serve the chops with the reserved marinade.
