Cooked Something New - Pineapple Lamb Chops

Came up with this recipe last week, after my pregnant wife was having serious pineapple cravings, which continued after the baby was born (little girl). Came out really good, though I wish the relish had been hotter - I get some defective chili peppers, which isn't altogether surprising in January in New England.

Full details on the cook available on our blog at


To make these, I marinated the chops in pineapple juice, kosher salt, dried oregano, and cayenne pepper for about 2 hours. I then seasoned them with black pepper, kosher salt, and dried oregano and grilled them direct at 500 degrees.

For the relish, I combined fresh pineapple, red onion, cilantro, a couple of chili peppers, some cayenne pepper to make up for my defective chilies, and some lime juice. I made this at the same time as I put the chops in the marinade, to give the flavors a chance to blend.

    Looks great - I luv lamb, I luv the type of salsa you describe (Whole Foods makes a great mango/pineapple/red onion salsa). You've inspired me to try this.

  • Mango would have been good in there and I had one too. Oh well. I'll have to try that next time.


  • Looks great, gonna try this tonight!
  • John, your lamb with pineapplesalsa looks spectacular. Pinapple Mango one of my favorite salsas. I'm sure it satiated your wifes craving! :)

    What, no pics of Sophia Rosemary??? :(
