Preparation

Pimiento Olive Butter: In bowl, stir together butter, diced olives, Dijon mustard and dried oregano until smooth. Spoon onto plastic wrap; shape into log and wrap tightly. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Slice into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick rounds.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix together oil, rosemary, thyme, oregano, fennel seeds, garlic and pepper; rub all over lamb. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate butter and lamb separately for up to 24 hours.)

Place chops on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill for about 10 minutes or until medium-rare, or until desired doneness. Serve with Pimiento Olive Butter.
