This is a delicious, one-bowl dinner...perfect for summer. Prep time does not include the 1 to 24-hour marination time for the lamb.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, zest, juice, cumin, salt and peppers. Pour half of this marinade over the lamb chunks in a sealable plastic bag. Marinate in the fridge for 1 to 24 hours.
  2. In a large bowl, toss tomatoes, herbs and remaining marinade. Set aside at room temperature while you prepare the couscous.
  3. Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add couscous; stir; cover and remove from heat. Let rest 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Add to tomato mix.
  4. Heat the grill or broiler to high. Thread lamb onto 4 skewers. Grill until just done, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  5. Mound couscous salad into 4 shallow bowls. Top each with a skewer of lamb.
