30mins
Serves 4

Should you be unable to track down ras-el-hanout spice blend, a raid of your storecupboard spices should suffice here by blending together, 2 tsp ground ginger, 2 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp cayenne pepper and 2 tsp paprika. There are essentially three elements to this recipe, the chops, the tzatziki and the salad, all of which can be enjoyed separately, or together as below.

For the tzatziki, mix all the ingredients in a bowl, season to taste, cover and set aside.
Combine the lamb chops, oil, and ras el hanout until they are completely coated. Place under a hot grill, season and cook for 3-4 minutes either side until medium rare.
Place all the ingredients for the salad in a bowl and toss together until well combined. Season the salad with a little salt and pepper.
Arrange the salad on a serving platter, place the lamb chops on top, drizzle with tzatziki and serve.
