Last night was my night to cook, and I took two largish lamb chops out of the freezer. Our balcony garden is overflowing with herbs, and I thought it would be nice to marinate the lamb in a slurry of basil, garlic and olive oil. "Hey!" I said to myself, that's only a couple of steps away from pesto. So I made the pesto from llizard's site bravo! (with toasted pine nuts, but without the cream) http://etherwork.net/ejmtph/recipes/sauces.html#pesto and slathered the thawed lamb chops with the pesto for a couple of hours. Then I baked them covered in the oven (on a grill inside the cast iron frying pan) until they were nearly done. At this point, there was the most wonderful goo in the bottom of the pan which I drizzled over the chops. Then I removed the cover and roasted them for another ten minutes.

The wonderful goo had been thick enough that it remained on top of the chops, so there was only a bit of oil in the bottom of the pan when I took it out of the oven.

The chops were heavenly. Extremely pesto-y and lamb-y!

Hmm, is it unseemly to have the jumping lamb here?

It sounds delicious!! Oh, how I wish I liked lamb! Perhaps the same thing could be done with pork? skip la la la skip la la la skip la la la or maybe chicken?

I just described this to MrBrown who loves lamb. He wants to eat this dinner. When I told him about the pesto, he said "basil pesto?" and I thought "well, what other kind would there be?" but then I remembered that I made cilantro pesto when the garden was overflowing with cilantro and I've made parsley pesto as well. The cilantro pesto was very good but not as good as basil pesto.

I'm sure it would be excellent with pork. Maybe chicken too, but it would probably be different.

I too wish that I liked lamb. This does sound pretty fantastic. But I bet it would be great with pork.

I made a huge batch of basil pesto for freezing in icecube trays so we can have a taste of summer in the dead of winter. (Sometimes I make mint pesto too that is to die for.) There was just a little left over after I filled two icecube trays. I used about a teaspoon in a vinaigrette for salad - whoa!! That was delicious!

And the other day, we grilled shrimp to go with our new favourite side dish of spaghettini with preserved lemons and we put the last little bit of pesto onto the shrimp just after they came off the grill. Mmmmmmmm! Pesto goes as well with shrimp as it does with salmon.

at last! whoohoo! whoohoo! whoohoo! whoohoo! whoohoo! at last!
