Ingredients

8
lamb chops (about 2 pounds)
1
teaspoon
curry powder
kosher salt and black pepper
2
tablespoons
olive oil
4
shallots, chopped
3
cups
frozen peas, thawed
2
teaspoons
fresh lemon juice
1
tablespoon
chopped fresh mint
2
pieces pita bread, torn into quarters and toasted

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Season the chops with the curry powder and ¾ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, brown the chops, about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Transfer the chops to a baking sheet and roast to the desired doneness, 4 to 6 minutes for medium-rare.
  4. Wipe out the skillet and heat the remaining oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Add the peas and gently smash with a fork or potato masher. Cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  6. Stir in the lemon juice, mint, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve with the lamb and pita bread.
