3 1/2 tbsp Tabil spice mix
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

When you are ready to cook, turn your grill on to medium-high heat. Season the lamb chops with salt and pepper. Place the chops and the lemon halves (cut side down) on the grill and cook to desired doneness.
Place them on a plate, garnish with grilled lemon and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.
