Ingredients

  • 4 pork chops about 6 0z/175 g each
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
  • 4 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 lemons halved

Method

Trim off all but 1/8 inch (3 mm) fat from chops; slash remaining fat at 1-inch (2.5 cm) intervals. Set aside.

Using mortar and pestle or bottom of heavy pot, lightly crush caraway seeds. In glass bowl, mix together caraway seeds, garlic, lemon rind and juice, half of the oil, the rosemary, pepper and salt; add chops and turn to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours, turning occasionally.)

Brush lemons with remaining oil. Place chops and lemons on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until lemons are slightly charred, and juices run clear and just a hint of pink remains in centre of chops, about 10 minutes. Serve chops with lemons to squeeze over meat.
