Perfect Lamb Chops

8 lamb chops, about 3/4-1" thick
3 tsp minced garlic
2 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
Pinch cayenne pepper
Coarse sea salt
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil


Food process the garlic and spices until well combined. Pour in olive oil and pulse into a paste. Rub the paste on both sides of the thawed 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 20-30 minutes.

Heat your grill or skillet to high Almost smoking.  Add your chops and sear on first side, uncovered for about 3 minutes.  Flip them over and cook for another 3 minutes.  Serve them medium rare.  Don't you dare overcook these delicate little pearls of deliciousness.
