This dish is flavoursome and incredibly easy to make, it would be rude not share this with your mates over the BBQ. Marinated mutton chops are grilled over a hot flame and served with mixed grains, rocket and plum tomatoes. Served with a pinch of gremolata and a glass of vino, this is the perfect meal to share.
