California Grown Gourmet Pistachios

Lamb Chop in Pistachio Crust with Artichokes

18/20 Lamb chops
Lemon or Lemon juice
2 Eggs
1/2 cup Pecorino cheese, grated
3 1/2 ounces White bread
1 1/2 cup Pistachios, shelled, natural whole
10 Large mint leaves, chopped
4 Artichokes

Clean artichokes and arrange in a bowl with water acidulated with lemon to prevent browning. Cut into thin slices and pan fry with a little oil, a few pistachios and an unpeeled clove of garlic.

Blend white bread with pecorino cheese, pistachios and mint leaves into a smooth mixture. Coat lamb chops in a little flour, dip in beaten egg and then in bread mixture. Fry chops, dry on kitchen paper and keep warm.

To complete, arrange a layer of fried artichokes on the bottom of serving plates and a lamb chop on top. Yield: 4/6 servings.
