Lime & Coconut Lamb

I seem to always be making something with lime and coconut (check my recipe index and you'll see what I mean) but darn it those flavors are really good together.

In this easy and fast recipe they're coupled with a killer lamb and curry that will guarantee me a mention in your will. Note that green curry paste, rather than regular paste, is called for which has coriander, cumin and lime as the main ingredients and gives it the spicy kick Andrew loves.

2 pounds lamb chops
8 oz cream of coconut
2 t peanut or corn oil
1-2 minced garlic cloves
2 t grated fresh ginger
2 T Thai green curry paste
grated rind and juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper
2 T chopped fresh cilantro plus extra for garnish
cooked rice for side

Saute garlic and ginger on high for 2-3 minutes then add chops and brown on both sides. Stir in curry paste and coconut milk. Add lime rind and juice. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer five minutes or until chops are tender. Stir in cilantro and serve with rice and garnished with fresh cilantro.
