These lamb kabobs are delicious and unique. I use the Lebanese 7 spice blend to give it that fabulous distinctive flavor that is found in Lebanese food. These are great by themselves, but I think they are especially delicious in a pita bread spread with hummus and tabuleh. I have recipes for all of that on here too!

Directions

  1. Combine onion, bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, mint, salt, 7 spice blend and egg in a bowl. Add lamb and mix well.
  2. Divide the mixture into 8 portions. Shape each portion around a skewer, forming a log that is about 2 inched wide and 6 inches long. Slightly flatten it so that the center will cook well.
  3. Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray and grill skewers for 5-6 minutes on each side, or until cooked to desired doneness. Serve immediately with pita bread, hummus and tabuleh.
  4. *For the Lebanese 7 spice blend: mix equal parts of allspice, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, fenugreek and ground dry ginger. Mix well and store in an air tight container.
