DIRECTIONS

  • Marinade: In a large bowl, beat together the grated onion, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Add the meat and toss it in the marinade to coat it thoroughly, then allow to marinate at room temperature for at least 3 hours, tossing every hour or so to keep the meat moist.
  • Light a layer of coals in a charcoal broiler and burn until a white ash appears on the surface, or preheat your kitchen broiler to its highest point.
  • Remove the meat from the marinade and string them on 4 long skewers, pressing them firmly together, alternate the lamb with the chunks of onion.
  • Broil 4" from the source of the heat, turning the skewers occasionally, until the meat is done to your taste and the onions are brown.
  • For rare allow about 10 minutes; well-done (which is more typical of Georgian cooking) will take about 15.
  • Slide the meat off onto individual plates and garnish with scallions and lemon.
