  • 1/2 pound asparagus
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2. Put 1 inch of water and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Place asparagus in the pan and steam for about 3 minutes, until tender but not soft (al dente). Drain and set aside.
3.Make a paste with olive oil, garlic, and Dijon mustard. Brush onto lamb chops.
4. Using high heat, grill, sauté, or broil the lamb chops for 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
5. Remove from heat and allow to rest. Plate asparagus with chops.
