 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
                         --- RED WINE MARINADE ---
  150      ml            Bulgarian country red wine
   45      ml            extra virgin olive oil
    2      cloves        garlic -- peeled and crushed
    5                    dried juniper berries -- crushed
                         --- LAMB ---
    8                    lamb chops -- trimmed of fat
                         salt and freshly ground black pepper
 
 1. Mix the marinade ingredients in a large shallow dish or plastic
 container, then add the lamb, turning the chops to ensure they are well
 coated in the mixture.
 
 2. Cover with clingfilm or a lid then leave to marinate all day or
 overnight in the fridge. If convenient, shake the container every now and
 then, or turn the chops over in the marinade.
 
 3. Lift the chops from the marinade then season and cook them on the
 barbecue for 10-15 minutes, turning frequently. Serve with olives and
 charred pepper skewers (see recipe).

 NOTES : Red wine, fresh rosemary and juniper berries give lamb chops a
 delicious Mediterranean flavour. For maximum effect, leave them to marinate
 as long as possible, preferably overnight.
