  • Summary

    Given my very high regard for a grilled naked lamb chop, all juicy and charred, when I do go for something more elaborate, it's got to be worth it. This dish is. Here, the meat is coated in toasted whole spices—fennel, coriander, and cumin seeds—that have been very lightly crushed. The seeds retain their texture, giving the meat both a heady scent and a good crunch. For serving, a tahini-lemon sauce adds a rich nuttiness, while a dash of sumac provides its berrylike tartness.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon Turkish red pepper or Aleppo pepper (or use red chile flakes)
    • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
    • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
    • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 pounds bone-in loin lamb chops, the thicker the better
    • Extra-virgin olive oil, for grilling
    • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (from about 2 lemons)
    • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, grated on a Microplane or minced
    • 1 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1 cup tahini
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 4 to 6 tablespoons ice water
    • Fresh dill sprigs
    • Ground sumac (optional)
