How to cook lamb chops

Combine all the ingredients for the marinade and pour over the lamb chops. Allow to marinate for at least 10 minutes, however, the longer the better. Heat a griddle pan or outdoor grill then cook the lamb chops for 3-4 minutes per side until they are deep golden and almost charred but still juicy. Stand the chops up on their fat side to allow the fat to render and crisp up. Remove the lamb chops from the heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving with Tzatziki.

How do you know when Lamb chops are done?
