Health Benefits of Lamb Meat
This lamb doesn't just look and taste good, it is also packed with health benefits which is great for immunity, especially since we all could work on our immune system right now. It is a rich source of healthy amino acids (high-quality protein), and vitamins and minerals including zinc and iron. Zinc is needed for immune function and may also have an effect against viruses.
Dijon Garlic Marinade
The secret to the aromatic flavour in these lamb chops lies in the marinade. It contains a combination of Asian, Middle Eastern and Western flavours. It gets its Asian influence from the cumin spice, garlic, and even a hint of soy sauce. And with the addition of Dijon mustard, a western American staple ingredient, you have yourself the ultimate worldly dish, where east meets west.
