Lemon & Thyme BBQ Lamb Chops

by | Sep 29, 2020 | Lamb


Growing up in a Greek Family, lamb was always a regular on the dinner menu. Lamb and lemon are a match made in heaven and then add a little thyme and it is just perfect!  This marinade is brilliant with lamb but could also be used with chicken just as well.



  • 4 lamb bbq chops
  • 1 lemon, finely grated zest & juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp thyme chopped
  • 1 small zucchini thickly sliced lengthways
  •  Salad leaves and lemon wedge to serve

What to do

  1. Spread lamb out in a shallow dish.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine lemon, oil, mustard and thyme. Season to taste. Pour marinade over lamb, turning to coat
  3. Set aside for 30 mins (longer if you have time). Turn occasionally.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat a barbecue plate on high. Reduce heat to medium. Cook lamb for 4-5 mins on each side, or until cooked to taste. Rest, covered for 5 mins.
  5. Chargrill zucchini for 1-2 mins on each side until tender.
  6. Serve lamb with the zucchini, salad and a lemon wedge on the side.
