Ingredients
For the Lamb Lollipops:
  • 8 Lamb Lollipops
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Garlic Salt to taste
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
For the Peach Salsa:
  • 2 Peaches 1 1/2 cups peaches, pitted and diced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 Vidalia onion diced
  • 1 Jalapeno pepper diced finely
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 2 limes juice
  • Mint to taste chopped finely
  • Optional:
  • 1 to 2 ounces of tequila
Instructions
  1. Directions for Lamb Lollipops:
  2. Place a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil. Let it heat up until it glistens.
  3. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic over the lamb lollipops, evenly.
  4. Toss the lamb lollipops in the pan, cook for about 3 to 4 minutes, turn and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Vary time according to how you like your meat. Lamb is best when it's not over-cooked, so well done is not optimal for it. Medium is a good choice, but everyone has their own preference. Cook it to your preference.
  5. Remove from pan and let rest for about 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
  6. Directions for Peach Salsa:
  7. Cut up all the ingredients. Mix peaches, sugar, onion, jalapeno pepper, red pepper together.
  8. Cut limes in half and squeeze juice over the salsa. If making salsa the night before wait till about 30 to 60 minutes before serving to add the juice. It will break down the salsa if done too early.
  9. Add mint right before serving so it doesn't overpower the salsa.
  10. If you like to eat you alcohol this salsa is perfection with a hit of tequila in it. Your call.
Putting it together:
  1. Plate the lamb lollipops, then spoon salsa over each one. Be sure to put extra on the table for those who like a little lamb with their salsa. I tend to go heavy on salsa. You control your own salsa destiny.
  2. Serve with a big old I made dinner in under 20 minutes smile!
