  1. Combine vinegar, oil, garlic, sugar, thyme leaves and lemon rind in a jug and whisk until sugar dissolves.                    
  2. Add sliced onion, then season with sea salt flakes and cracked black pepper and mix well.                    
  3. Place lamb chops in a non-metallic dish, pour marinade over, cover and marinate for up to 4 hours.                    
  4. Remove chops from marinade, reserving marinade and onion.                    
  5. Heat a barbecue or chargrill over medium-high heat. Cook chops for 3 minutes each side or until cooked through.                    
  6. Meanwhile, put reserved marinade in a saucepan with 1/3 cup water and simmer until onion is softened and liquid has reduced.                    
  7. Serve lamb with onion relish, lettuce, cucumber and corn.                    
  8. Tip: This marinade will work beautifully with beef cuts such as rump or porterhouse, and chicken cuts such as thighs, wings and Maryland's.
