> 1 small lemon
> 1 cup whole-milk plain Greek yogurt
> 1/4 cup olive oil
> 1 1/4 tsp salt
> 2 cloves garlic, peeled
> 2 tsp ground cumin
> 1 tsp ground coriander
> 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish
> 1 1/2 lbs lamb loin chops


Trim ends off the lemon and remove seeds. Cut up lemon and place in a blender, along with the yogurt, oil, salt, garlic, cumin, coriander, and cilantro. Purée until smooth and transfer to a resealable gallon-size bag. Add the lamb to the bag and seal, pushing out any excess air. Shake to distribute marinade and refrigerate 2–4 hours.
Arrange oven rack in top position. Heat broiler on high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Remove lamb from yogurt, wiping off excess, and arrange on lined pan. Broil 4–5 min. per side, until browned. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
