    Preparation method:

    1. Peel off the shell of the shrimps leaving on the last segment of the tail.
    2. Devein them if you are skilled enough, I was lazy, so I left most of them with the veins.

    4. Chop these parsley leaves.
    5. Place the parsley leaves, 100 ml olive oil, the chopped garlic cloves and lime juice into a bowl.
    6. Using a hand/stick blender them until everything is mixed nicely together.
    7. Coat the shrimps with a bit of remaining olive oil and grill them 1- 2 minutes per side until cooked and have nice grill marks. Proceed in batches if having a smaller grill, like me.
    8. Lay the shrimps on a large plate and drizzle the chimichurri sauce over them. Serve while hot.

    August 31, 2018 by Varga László

    Ingredients (2 servings ):

    • 6 lamb chops
    • 1 lemon
    • 3 garlic cloves
    • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
    • 1 small red chilli pepper

    1. Chop the garlic.

    3. Squeeze the juice of half of the lemon.
    4. Mix together in a flatter bowl the chopped garlic, chopped chilli, oregano, lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Add the lamb chops. Toss them well in the marinade mixture, to be covered evenly. ( I did it a bit differently, I added the marinade ingredients over the lamb and tossed them a bit to mix them and cover evenly the lamb chops.)
    5. Let the chops marinate for 1-2 hours, even overnight if you have the time.
    6. Meanwhile, prepare the asparagus:
    7. Wash the asparagus stalks and tear off their woodsy lower third.
    8. Grill the asparagus over high heat on two sides for a few minutes, until they get the nice charred grill marks.
    9. Grill the lamb chops for 2-3 minutes on each side and let them rest for a couple of minutes.
    10. Serve the lamb chops with the grilled asparagus and some lemon wedges / slices.
