    Using a sharp knife, score the skin of the chops (this will help the chops to crisp while cooking) and season with crushed sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

    Heat the oil in a large ovenproof frying pan. Add the chops and cook for 1 minute on each side to seal. Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for 7 minutes.
