Grilling chops is quicker and easier than manoeuvring the entire rack on the grill. Adding reserved cooking liquid and olive oil to the smashed potatoes gives them a creamy texture without adding cream or butter.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs potatoes peeled and quartered
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 8 lamb chops (approx 1-1/4 lb/565 g total)

Method

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potatoes and 4 of the garlic cloves until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid, drain; transfer potatoes and garlic to large bowl.

Add reserved cooking liquid, oil and half each of the pepper and salt; smash with potato masher until smooth with a few chunks remaining. Stir in chives. Keep warm.

Mince remaining garlic. Combine garlic, rosemary, mustard, and remaining pepper and salt. Rub all over chops. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until desired doneness, about 8 minutes for medium-rare. Serve with potatoes.
