  1. Combine sugar, garlic, spices, ¼ tsp each salt and pepper, and 1 Tbsp olive oil in a small dish. Rub spice paste over both sides of the lamb chops.
  2. Thinly slice red onion, place in a small bowl with the vinegar and a good pinch of salt. Dice avocado and squeeze over lemon juice. Use a vegetable peeler to shave zucchini into ribbons.
  3. Bring 3 cm of water to the boil in a large saucepan. Add corn and simmer for 2 min, turning to cook all sides. Drain well and brush with a bit of olive oil.
  4. Preheat a BBQ grill or heavy-based pan to medium-high. Grill corn for 5 min, until golden and slightly charred. Cut kernels from cob.
  5. Cook chops for 3 - 5 min per side, or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate, and cover with foil to rest.
  6. Combine corn, zucchini ribbons, avocado, coriander leaves and half the pickled onion. Whisk remaining 1 Tbsp oil into the onion vinegar to make a dressing, drizzle over salad. Serve lamb chops with charred corn salad and extra pickled onion.


  • Want to try this recipe in an airfryer? Follow these tips
    • Bring lamb chops to room temperature, as you would when cooking on a pan or bbq.
    • Preheat airfryer to 200°C for 10 min, before adding lamb. This helps with browning and keeps the inside moist.
    • Cooking in an airfryer takes roughly the same amount of time as cooking on a pan or bbq. A meat thermometer is the best tool for achieving your desired doneness.
    • For medium, remove chops from airfryer when the internal temperature of the thickest part reaches 60°C. Check temperature, initially, after 9 minutes, then cook for a further minute or two and check again.
  • Substitute sweet paprika for chilli powder if preferred.
  • Lamb forequarter chops would also work well in this recipe.
