Paprika Lamb Chops

with Mediterranean Salad

By Ralph Kratzer

SummerNow, as temperatures rise and rise, I interrupt my series “Cypriot Recipes” and and start with a series of recipes that I call “Summer Kitchen”.

The important thing is that your time in the kitchen is limited to a minimum and the dishes are light and easy to digest.

Enjoy the summer and happy cooking!



Ingredients (serves 4)

800 g lamb loin chops

2 tspn sweet paprika powder

Feta Cheese_2each 1 medium red and green pepper, chopped

2 medium tomatoes, chopped

1 medium onion, sliced

200 g Feta cheese, crumbled

1 tbsp lemon juice

fresh parsley

olive oil

lemon slices and black olives for garnish


– Season the lamb chops with sweet paprika powder.

Lamb chops with salad– Fry them in a large pan until browned on both sides. Cover the pan and let them stand for a few minutes.

– Combine the tomatoes, red and green pepper, onion, Feta cheese, lemon juice and parsley, add olive oil to taste and toss gently.

– Serve salad and chops together on the plates and garnish with lemon slices and black olives, if wanted.

A dry red table wine fits well with the dish.
