We used this marinade on lamb chops (that we grilled) and then grilled red and yellow peppers on skewers brushed with the marinade. It was divine. I could imagine this marinade would go well with chicken as well. Thanks for the recipe! It's a keeper. :-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak skewers (for 1 hour or more).
  2. Cut lamb into bite size pieces. In a large bowl whisk 1/4 cup lemon juice, 2 tablespoons oil, 2 tablespoons ginger, 2 cloves minced garlic, 2 teaspoons cumin, 2 teaspoons honey. Add lamb, stir to coat, cover and chill 4 hours or overnight; stir once.
  3. Oil grill and preheat BBQ to med-high. Slice pepper and onion into chunks and thread onto skewers with lamb (alternating ingredients). Sprinkle with salt & pepper.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk leftover marinade ingredients and set aside for basting. Grill kebabs 7-10 minutes, turning occasionally.
  5. Serve with pita, greek salad and tzatziki -- Yummmm!
