Grilled Curry-Ginger Lamb Chops

Grilled Curry-Ginger Lamb Chops

Curry and ginger are two spices that always work with lamb. Here, the lamb is marinated in a pastelike mixture made with those spices and apricot preserves. We recommend grilling over medium heat for this recipe so that the sweet apricot mixture doesn't burn.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 chops)


  • 1/3 cup apricot preserves
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 3 tablespoons grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 none (4-ounce) lamb loin chops, trimmed
  • none Cooking spray
  • none Cilantro sprigs (optional)


Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl, and spread over lamb. Place lamb in a shallow dish; cover and marinate in refrigerator at least 3 hours.

Prepare grill.

Coat lamb with cooking spray. Place lamb on grill rack. Grill 7 to 8 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
