Grilled Lamb Chops With Lemon-Tarragon Aïoli and Orange Gremolata

At medium-rare, the meat will feel soft and slightly springy when pressed with tongs or your finger. Medium lamb will be slightly firm and springy. Lamb chops cooked beyond medium doneness may be tough and dry. Remember, the meat will continue to cook during the five-minute standing time.
