Ingredients

  • 4 small lamb chops
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 10 oz asparagus
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves

Instructions

  • Season the lamb chops with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet and add the lamb. Cook until done to your liking, then set aside and keep warm.
  • While the lamb is cooking, add a little more oil to a grill pan and place over a medium heat. Add the asparagus and cook until done, turning regularly.
  • After the lamb has been removed from the first skillet, add heavy cream, lemon zest, and fresh thyme leaves. Cook until the sauce thickens, which should only take a minute or two. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  • Transfer the lamb to serving plates, and add the asparagus. Drizzle the sauce over the lamb chops, and serve.
