Instructions
The Day Before You Grill:
  1. Add the shallots, mint, rosemary, thyme, and garlic in a small bowl. Season with salt to taste.
  2. Take a heaping teaspoon, and place on one of the chops. Use the back of the spoon to press it into the meat. Repeat with all the lamb chops.
  3. Place the chops, spice side down, on a large baking sheet. Divide the rest of the spice mixture among the lamb chops, pressing it onto the meat as you did with the first side.
  4. Cover the baking sheet, and refrigerate overnight to infuse the meat with flavor.
Grilling Day:
  1. Remove the chops from the fridge and allow them to come to room temperature.
  2. Add the olive oil, lemon juice and zest to a small bowl. Whisk together until thoroughly blended. The mixture should thicken slightly.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Spoon a little of the mixture onto each lamb chop. Turn, and spoon the mixture onto the other side as well.
  5. Allow the chops to stand for about 1 hour at room temperature.
  6. Bring the barbecue to a medium-high heat and grill chops 3-5 minutes per side, to desired level of doneness.
  7. Serve immediately.
