Pinxtos Morunos: Grilled Lamb Marinated in Cumin, Lemon and Saff

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MarraMamba

Sean Mullen of Boqueria's version of the moroccan influenced dish found in spain dish. I LOVE the idea of mint in it and jalapeño. Part of his "tapas menu for 8" Oscar party. Time does not include overnight marination. Edited to reflect the lower amt of olive oil suggested

Marra, this was wonderful flavoured lamb and we very much enjoyed it. The only thing which was a shame is that the amount of olive oil was just too much for this amount of meat and after marinating there was a lot of waste. I will certainly make this again (maybe even trying it with pork too) but will use only 1 cup of oil, the recipe states 2, but will keep the seasoning of the marinade the same. I served this with couscous mixed with peas and broccoli. Thanks for sharing!
