Recipe: Grilled Dijon-Lemon Lamb Kabobs


So, you and I both know kabobs are just bits of meat on sticks. But the end result is so much more romantic and impressive than that!

In this case, tender chunks of leg of lamb are marinated in a tangy mix of lemon, Dijon mustard, and fresh marjoram. The result is a flavorful, savory main dish that is altogether irresistible.

Remember, if you’re using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before grilling so they don’t catch on fire. (Kabobs aren’t quite as tasty when they’re full of charred wood…)

Grilled Dijon-Lemon Lamb Kabobs joins Roasted Red Pepper Hummus; Smoky Baba Ganoush; and Chickpea Falafel Salad with Tahini Dressing in our Mediterranean Mezze menu.
