Lamb Chops with Medjool Dates
In a large pan, saute onions in olive oil. Stir in spices, water, honey and chopped dates. Cover and bring to a boil. When mixture comes to a boil, add lamb chops and let cook, uncovered, until lamb is done, about 30 to 45 minutes. Meanwhile, stuff 1 almond into each whole date, reserving remaining almonds for garnish. When lamb is done, gently add stuffed dates and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. For each serving, place 3 lamb chops and 6 stuffed dates on each plate. Top with sauce and garnish with remaining almonds and sesame seeds.
