Pomegranate and Honey Glazed Lamb

A very quick easy and tasty dinner. This was exactly what I needed tonight. Just the thing when galloping exhaustion strikes yet something that tastes wonderful is required at the end of the day. I thank Kate for the recipe which came from 'Cook Simple' by Diana Henry.

8 chunky lamb chops (I use chump)
2&1/2 tblsps pomegranate molasses
10 tblsps olive oil
1&1/2 tblsps runny honey
2 garlic cloves crushed
2 teasps cayenne pepper.

Mix marinade ingredients in a plastic bag.
Pop the chops in the bag and coat well.
Leave for 1-24 hours.
Cook in a griddle pan carefully as the sugars may cause the chops to stick

A quick and very tasty dinner. I served with rocket and pomegranate salad with a balsamic dressing and boiled new potatoes. Delicious.

Brenda, I love the little decorations around the plate! It really looks wonderful. I don't think I can get my family to ever like jam however, maybe I can get them to try the cucumber jam which I making tonight as well as the wheaten bread! :)

Gloria, js, Rosa Sarah and Vicky Thank you.

Nina pleased you like my blog. You are always welcome.

Patti Hi. The chops I had were 1.5-2cms thick. I put them on the griddle pan when the I held my hand a couple of inches above it and could feel the heat. Squash the chops a bit with a pallet knife or fish slice to get the nice ridge marks. I don't like my lamb overdone but not too rare either. About 3 minutes each side then let 'relax' for a few minutes before serving. I hope that helps

Granny this dish sounds like a winner! 'We love our lamb' as they saying goes here in Aus, and I love the combo of it with pomegranate molasses. I'm going to get some lamb and try this really soon thankyou:)

It's beautiful. Lamb is my favorite. It brings back memories of my Grandmother roasting lamb on her Ranch.

Granny - that photo is stunning !

Lamb is one of my favourite meats and I've never paired it with pomegranate molasses so I must try it.

I often make salmon marinated in PG with microplaned fresh ginger.
