  • 8 lamb chops
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of honey (optional)
  • Zest from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Finely chop the mint & parsley, or if you have a food processor, whizz the fresh ingredients for a few seconds until finely chopped. Before you continue…. enjoy the fresh smell, it is amazing!
  • Combine the herbs with the honey, lemon zest, olive oil & salt & pepper. Set aside. 
  • Heat the coconut oil in a large pan on the stove over a medium-high heat and cook the lamb chops for approximately 5 minutes on each side. Ideally the chops will be crisp & brown on the outside, while they are slightly pink on the inside.
