  • 12 lamb loin chops

  • 1 large red capsicum, cut into thick strips

  • 1 large green capsicum, cut into thick strips

  • 1 large yellow capsicum, cut into thick strips

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar

  • 10 basil leaves, roughly torn


  • 1.

    Brush or spray the lamb chops lightly with oil and then season with salt and pepper. Preheat char-grill or barbecue to moderately-hot.

  • 2.

    Cook lamb on one side until moisture appears on top. Turn with tongs and cook until done to your liking. Turn lamb once only. Test for doneness with tongs. Rare is soft when pressed, medium is springy and well done is very firm. Cover lamb loosely with foil and rest it for 2-3 minutes before serving.

  • 3.

    While the lamb is resting, cook the capsicum strips on the barbecue for a minute on each side. Put the strips into a bowl with the oil, vinegar and basil leaves. Serve lamb with the grilled capsicum salad.
