Lamb chops and....
I am particularly lucky this weekend. I don't have to go anywhere. Just me and chowspouse for Easter dinner. So, baby lamb chops....what else? Last time just did chops with S&P and mustard greens, don't recall the starch, might have been fingerlings...
What would you do?
Since brussels sprouts are just starting to appear in the farmer's market...What about lamb chops with roast brussels sprouts tossed in mint/cilantro? I bet it would be a good combination. David Chang's recipe is a little wild but fun. I really liked it: http://www.pithyandcleaver.com/?p=73
Or roast asparagus?
I like to put a tiny bit of curry powder on lamb chops before cooking.
I love a potato and gruyere soufle (not difficult). Also for the chops I love a light white wine and dried fruit chutney with some spice), for a veggie, I love roasted grape tomatoes with garlic oil and herbs, and a chilled asparagus salad with a light dill cream sauce. No bread needed.
Roasted fennel cut thin over fresh arugula or spinach with a simple balsamic honey vinaigrette with orange zest is great served with lamb. I love crusting lamb glazed with orange marmalade and honey and fresh mint which is a simple glaze and makes for a great easy topping. Served with the fennel and salad and then some grilled baguettes with a wild mushroom ragu and goat cheese.
