Garam Masala Baby Lamb Chops with Smashed Fingerlings

Lend savory Indian flavors to these delicate lamb chops—great with hearty potatoes and toothsome green beans.


1 Tbsp. garam masala, toasted
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
8 baby lamb chops, Frenched
2 lbs. fingerling potatoes
2 Tbsp. Ready-Set-Serve Washed & Trimmed Parsley, chopped
1 Tbsp. canola oil
2 lbs. Ready-Set-Serve Green Beans


Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix together garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and oil; brush on chops. Toss potatoes with the remaining spice-oil mixture. Let chops marinate while potatoes roast.
Roast potatoes on baking sheet until tender and slightly browned (35 minutes). Smash some of the potatoes with a fork, making sure to leave some whole pieces. Stir in parsley plus one teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Heat a cast-iron grill pan. When hot, sear chops and cook until medium rare (2-3 minutes per side). Set aside to rest.
Heat saute pan with one tablespoon canola oil; add green beans and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook one high heat until slightly charred.
Serve two lamb chops each with equal portions of potatoes and green beans.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
