  • Mix seasonings in medium bowl. Add onion, orange juice, wine, lime juice and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Reserve 1/2 cup of the mojo mixture. Place lamb chops in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add remaining mojo; turn to coat well.

  • Refrigerate 1 hour or longer for extra flavor. Remove lamb from marinade; pat dry. Discard any remaining marinade.

  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add lamb chops; cook 2 to 4 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Remove lamb chops to serving plate; keep warm. Add reserved mojo to skillet; simmer 1 minute, stirring to loosen browned bits in bottom of skillet. Serve mojo over lamb chops.

    Never thought that I would find a recipe that would make lamb taste so amazing. Instead of red wine, I actually substitute it with cranberry juice (cocktail). I double the ingredients to create a light dressing over candied-almond dried cranberry-pear arugula salad (with a side of orange rice)... a light, refreshing and wonderfully delicious combination.
