Serve these fragrantly-spiced lamb chops with our Cucumber, Cranberry-Bean, and Beet Salad.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine curry powder and salt in a shallow bowl. Coat lamb chops thoroughly on all sides.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add oil. When hot, add lamb chops, working in batches so as not to overcrowd pan; cook until well browned on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet.
Roast until chops are cooked to desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare. Remove from oven; serve hot.
