hot stuff: day trip in Morocco and grilled lamb chops with green Harissa

venez avec moi à Morocco 
(part deux)

Happy summer!

In Paris we experienced a canicule, a heatwave, like I have never seen. It sent the Parisians to the country. For those that could not leave the city for the weekend, the mayor opened up additional parks where people gathered in droves under the shade of the green trees.

The triple-digit (Fahrenheit) weather reminded me of Morocco.

This post was intended to be part two of the photo journal I posted last autumn about Marrakech (with a recipe for Harira, a traditional Moroccan soup); however, the weather turned surprisingly cold and a grilling recipe, part two or not, seemed ridiculous. It is relevant now. Summer is here and the hot weather brings with it a desire to eat light and stay out of the kitchen. It is also grilling season.

So, here it is, Morocco, Part Deux, and a simple grilling recipe for skewered lamb chops with a spicy green Harissa.

Enjoy!

grilled lamb chops with green Harissa

grilled lamb chops with green Harissa

This recipe takes very little time to prepare. The green Harissa can be made in 10 minutes. The lamb cooks quickly on the grill (about 5 minutes). This green Harissa can be used on beef or chicken as well as vegetarian options such as couscous or a baked/roasted potatoes. For less of a kick, reduce the Harissa.
