Lamb Skewers

It is a BBQ recipe and a crowd pleaser. Every time I organize a BBQ, the lamb skewers never last long. The secret is in my spice mixture.


Diced lamb (200 g)

Spice mixture: cumin powder : chilli powder : salt (3 : 1 : 1). (You can add more chilli powder, if you like it spicy.)

salad: diced tomato, olives, feta cheese, artichoke, char grilled capsicum strips, sundried tomato strips, lettuce, parsley, basil

Salad dressing: olive oil (1 teaspoon), caramelized balsamic vinegar (2 table spoon), salt and pepper.

What to do:

  1. Prepare spice mixture, salad and salad dressing, set aside. Put the dressing on before serving.
  2. Put diced lamb on skewers
  3. On a hot grill (or a barbecue), cook the lamb skewers until all of them changed color and take them off from heat immediately. (I diced the lamb into small cubes, so it doesn’t take long to cook. If the meat is in bigger cubes, they might need a bit longer to cook. Try not to over cook the lamb.)
  4. Once the skewers are cooked, season with the prepared spice mixture. Serve with salad.

Note: Meat from lamb leg is best for this recipe.
