Here is an easy recipe using Lamb chops. Cumin is a spice that works great with Lamb, not too spicy, but strong enough to bring out the best flavour of Lamb.

You will need:

6 Welsh Lamb chops

1kg New Potatoes

1 Clove of garlic- grated or chopped finely

1 lemon - skin grated finely and juice separately

2 tablespoons olive oil or extra virgin cooking oil (Blodyn Aur Oil works well)
