Lamb Chops with Pistachio Crust

Dynamite combo. Crushed pistachios add flavor and a delightfully crunchy crust to lamb chops. My hubby worked in catering for a long time, and he reminisces nostalgically about the pistachio-crusted baby lamb chops they used to serve. Baby lamb chops are tender and delicious, but to make enough for 4 people would take more than 15 minutes. However, if you have the time, roll up your sleeves and use the baby chops. You will need about 3-4 per person.


  • Prep Time : 8 min min
  • Ready Time : 8 min


4 servings


  • 1 cup salted pistachios, shelled
  • 1/3 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 (1-inch thick) shoulder lamb chops



  1. Preheat broiler. Lightly grease a broiler pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Crush pistachios in food processor until finely chopped, about 30 seconds; you should have about 1/2 cup.
  3. Mix ground nuts, salt and pepper and place on a plate.
  4. Pour olive oil onto another plate.
  5. Rinse lamb chops and pat dry.
  6. Dip chops in olive oil and then in pistachio mixture to coat all surfaces.
  7. Place chops in prepared broiler pan.
  8. Broil lamb chops for 7 minutes on each side for medium to medium rare or longer depending on desired degree of doneness. Serve immediately.
