Let's dive into the kitchen and explore the art of honey-infused cooking with this simple yet impressive recipe.


  • 8 Welsh lamb chops

  • 4 tablespoons raw Welsh honey

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Marinate the Lamb Chops:

    • In a bowl, combine the raw Welsh honey, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Whisk the ingredients together to form a smooth marinade.

  1. Coat the Lamb Chops:

    • Place the Welsh lamb chops in a shallow dish and generously coat them with the honey marinade. Ensure that each chop is thoroughly covered for a harmonious infusion of flavors. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes to allow the honey to work its magic.

  1. Preheat the Oven:

    • Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).

  1. Sear the Lamb Chops:

    • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, sear the marinated lamb chops for 2-3 minutes on each side or until they develop a golden-brown crust. This step locks in the flavors and creates a caramelized exterior.

  1. Transfer to the Oven:

    • Place the seared lamb chops on a baking sheet and transfer them to the preheated oven. Roast for 10-15 minutes for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time according to your preferred level of doneness.

  1. Glaze with Honey:

    • In the last 5 minutes of roasting, drizzle an extra layer of raw Welsh honey over the lamb chops. This will create a glossy, sweet glaze that enhances both the visual appeal and flavor profile of the dish.

  1. Rest and Serve:

    • Allow the lamb chops to rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a tender and succulent bite. Garnish with additional fresh rosemary for a touch of elegance.

  1. Enjoy the Symphony of Flavors:

    • Plate your Honey-Glazed Welsh Lamb Chops and savor the harmonious blend of savory, sweet, and herbal notes. Pair with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables or a light salad, for a complete culinary experience.
