This Pesto Lamb Chop Skewers with BBQ Vegetables is a fun way to elevate a simple BBQ night into something extra special and delicious! It’s a wonderful main course recipe to serve for the family or even as a platter when you have a large group of people because it’s easy to up the quantity and suits a variety of tastes. It’s also fun and interactive to serve too.

Today I'm sharing with you this lamb loin chops recipe that is slathered in a rich, aromatic basil pesto, then barbecued to perfection, and comes out juicy and tender every time. The vegetables are perfectly charred and then dressed in a sweet balsamic glaze with extra virgin olive oil and finely grated parmesan cheese. It's healthy, super flavourful, simple to make, and versatile. Enjoy!

Helpful Tips


  • Lamb Loin Chops: these chops are pretty lean, look like a mini t-bone steak, and only need 5-6 minutes per side to barbecue.

  • Basil Pesto: this is a blend of fresh basil, pine nuts, olive oil, garlic, and parmesan cheese. You can use a homemade recipe or a store-bought jar. I have used my own recipe which is dairy-free. I prefer a dairy-free pesto because the cheese does not stick to the grill and you don't miss out on the parmesan flavour as I replace it with hemp seeds for a creamy and cheesy taste.

  • Balsamic Vinegar Glaze: this is the result of the blend of balsamic vinegar and a sweetener, such as honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar, that has been cooked down until it forms into this amazingly scrumptious thick, syrupy concoction. I drizzle it over my green salads, barbecued vegetables, and even cooked meats.
