Spicy Lamb Kebab

Kebabs are a great food for any occasion. They are easy to prepare and can be made using just about anything! You can make them with meat or without, with veggies or a combination of both. Kebabs are skewered meats and vegetables cooked over a hot flame; wither on a grill or under a broiler in the oven. My recipe today is to make spicy lamb Kebabs, Cubes of tender lamb fillet are marinated in an array of herbs and spices that produce a spicy flavor that is so irresistible.


Lamb marinade:
1/2 pound lean boned leg of lamb
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 garlic clove, minced
Pinch of ground red pepper or cayenne

       Vegetable mix:

2 cups (1-inch) sliced zucchini
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 small onion, cut into 4 wedges
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
Pinch of ground pepper


1.Trim fat from lamb. Cut lamb into 1-inch pieces; set aside.

2. Combine yogurt and all lamb marinade ingredients (yogurt through garlic) in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add lamb, seal and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove lamb from bag, reserving marinade.

3. Thread lamb onto 2 (10-inch) skewers.

4. Thread zucchini, bell pepper and onion wedges onto 2 (10-inch) skewers. Brush olive oil and garlic powder over the vegetables.

5. Prepare grill or broiler. Place kebabs on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 7 minutes on each side or until done, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Serve kebabs with rice , chick peas or salad
