Lamb Shish Kebab

"From the net, USENET Community Trust. I want to make this very soon, probably this weekend - looks really yum! Not sure if the 2lb of lamb for 4 people is really right though, I'll be using closer to 1lb. UPDATE: having made this with 1lb, I would definately double the spices as it didn't have the kick I wanted. Serve with nice yoghurty sauce!"

Questions & Replies

  1. Do I need to add in any salt? If yes.. how much salt


  1. Based on Fairy Nuff's review, I halved the lamb and doubled up on spice--great result and really pretty!
  2. Very good kebabs, just double the spices and add a little bit of sea salt after they are done.
  3. Very tasty. Yes, double the spices, and still isn't too strong - just right. Marinated for 2 hours. I BBQed on a medium heat for nearly 20 mins too as my wife doesn't like bloody meat. Still tender. Will definitely do again.

  4. Well nice lovely lamb shish will use this marinade again and again
  5. Beck these were so good!!! I did add more of the spices (a little more than double) and used a boned leg of lamb for the meat. I dumped the marinade ingredients in a zip-lock bag,added the lamb and left it in the fridge for 4 hours. I didn't have any green peppers (bummer-they would have added lovely colour) so used a mix of yellow and red. I bbq'd the kebabs for about 15 minutes and served them with flat bread, hommus and tabouli.Great meal that will be made again!!


I live in Melbourne with my gorgeous husband Andy! We're both total foodies who love making and eating dishes of all sorts - I normally try at least 4 new recipes a week. We both do swing dancing and are totally obsessed with our two beautiful cats, Couscous (mine) and Moo(DH's).
