1 Tbsp. serrano pepper, or other chili pepper
1/4 red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. coriander seeds, crushed
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
1 Tbsp. tomato paste
1 tsp. sea salt
<b>For the salsa:</b>
1 mango, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, minced
3 Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped
3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp. freshly grated ginger

In a large bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients. Add the lamb chops and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight.
In a medium bowl, combine all of the mango mint salsa ingredients and toss well to combine.
Preheat a grill pan over medium heat until the rim of the pan is hot to the touch. Brush the pan generously with olive oil and allow it to heat for another minute. Grill the chops in batches, two minutes per side for medium.
Serve immediately, topped with the salsa.
