Directions

  1. Using a mortar and pestle, mash garlic, cilantro, cumin, paprika, thyme, salt and pepper.
  2. Add olive oil and lemon juice or vinegar and mix well.
  3. Place 4-5 pieces of meat on each skewer (for best results, first soak skewers 1/2 hour in water).
  4. Put skewer in a container and top with marinade.
  5. Let marinate for 2-3 hours, turning every once in a while.
  6. Grill over medium heat until cooked through-- about 10-15 minutes, turning as needed.
  7. Serve with lemon wedges and cilantro.
  8. Note: These can be done in the oven too-375° for 15 minutes (about), turning once.

There were 6 of us, so doubled the recipe, (none left,though). They were really good, using lamb fillet. Apart from marinading the were quick and easy to make and I added a mint-jelly dipper (sacrilege), but would cut down a little on garlic and cilantro next time.

i made these tonight and they were basically inedible. i thought that i must have made a mistake. After double checking, i learn that i didn't. They tasted like chorizo which wouldn't have been bad had it not been for the texture. It was horribly grainy...like eating sand.

Excellent!!!! What a wonderful appetizer. I didn't have any hot paprika so used what I had on hand (sweet) and added a heaped teaspoon of minced red chillies. Cooked these on the barbecue for approximately fifteen minutes and they were perfect. Thanks for a great recipe.
