I love this lamb dish. The flavors sound unusual, but they compliment the meat nicely. I first tasted this last summer at a cook out. I begged for the recipe and got it from the hostess.

Wonderful flavours in this Mark, and so easy to prepare! We ate this tonight with Couscous by Dancer, Lemon Tossed Salad by Diana Neal, and natural yoghurt as a sauce over the kebabs. Thanks for a great recipe.
