With Easter getting closer I thought I would leave a couple of Diabetic Friendly recipe ideas from the web site of Diabetic Gourmet. If you have never visited the site you need too. It’s packed full of diabetic friendly recipes! http://diabeticgourmet.com/recipes/Holidays_and_Special_Occasions/Easter/

Adobo-Crusted Lamb Loin Chops

Makes 4 servings


1 tablespoon fennel seed
1 tablespoon cumin seed
2 teaspoons coriander seed
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
2 teaspoons cracked pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoons lime zest
8 lamb loin chops, 1-inch thick
4 tablespoons olive oil

In a dry skillet, toast fennel, cumin, coriander, rosemary and pepper for a few minutes until aromatic; let cool and grind coarsely in a spice grinder or blender.
Stir in salt, garlic, oregano, thyme and lime zest.
Rub both sides of each lamb chop with about a tablespoon of the spice mixture; cover and let stand for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400F.
Heat two oven-proof large skillets over medium-high heat; add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to each pan and bring just to the smoking point.
Place four lamb chops in each hot pan and sear for 5 minutes; turn lamb to sear the second side for an additional 2 minutes.
Place the pans into the oven and continue to cook the chops for 5 to 10 minutes or until lamb is cooked to your liking.
