Going Coastal Recipe: Blackened Lamb Chops

Blackened Lamb Chops with Black Bean SalsaAmigeauxs is the name I came up with to call Mexican/Creole Fusion Cuisine.  It is also the name of my first cookbook.  Below is one of my favorite recipes from that cookbook, Blackened Lamb Chops with Black Bean Salsa.  For the plating I took a French hoagie roll and sliced it in half then toasted it with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and garlic powder.  I put two chops on top of the bread and some salsa on top of the chops.
