We will start by crushing in a mortar a few mint leaves together with the juice of one lemon and three tablespoons of olive oil. We also add a pinch of salt and reserve.

The next step is to paint the chops with the mixture that we have prepared, making sure that they are well impregnated. We let them steep for an hour or two, turning them frequently. Finally, we go through the griddle or the coals until they are done to our liking and we serve them watering with a little more lemon and mint sauce.
