Grilled Lamb Kebobs with Walnut-Herb Sauce

Makes 8 servings Grilled lamb is a nice change of pace from the typical chicken or steak kebobs, and we are especially fond of this combination of lightly marinated lamb shoulder and the flavorful walnut-herb sauce, bright and tangy from lots of lemon. Use the same marinade and pairings for any skewers or other grilled items, including veggies, steak, or even shrimp.

Ingredients

  • 3 lb lamb shoulder, cut into 3/4-in cubes
  • Salt, as needed
  • Ground black pepper, as needed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 8 flat metal skewers
  • Pita Bread, for serving
  • Walnut-Herb Sauce

Directions

  1. Season the lamb with salt and pepper and combine with the oil, garlic, cumin, red pepper flakes, and allspice. Allow to marinate for 1 hour, and put the meat onto skewers.
  2. Grill the kebobs over high heat, turning occasionally, until the meat is well charred on all sides, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Serve with the pita bread and walnut-herb sauce.
