3781778117 c5c77b4869 Grilled Cumin Lamb Kabobs

Along with flavour cumin has many health benefits including aiding digestion, supplying a good source of iron and research is starting to show that cumin seeds may also have anti-carcinogenic properties. It’s also a must have in many Mexican and Middle Eastern dishes and is available both in its whole seed form or ground into a powder.

Serves 2

1 1/2 lbs Organic/Sustainable lamb shoulder or leg of lamb – cut into uniform pieces (Ask your butcher to cut it for you, much easier)
1/2 green pepper – cut in cubes
1/2 red onion – cut into cubes
1 tsp ground cumin
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 lemon – zested

Preheat barbecue or stove top grill pan.

Begin by mixing the oil, cumin, salt and lemon juice in a small bowl. Assemble the kabobs as per the photo, alternating between lamb and red onion with green pepper at the top and bottom of each skewer.

TIP: Soak the bamboo skewers in water for at least 2 hours before grilling. This will help prevent the skewers from burning.

Once together and ready to cook, brush all sides of the lamb with the olive oil mixture. Spray your grill or grill pan with olive oil spray. Sear the lamb for 15 minutes on all sides or until nice and pink inside, 120°F for medium rare.

(Optional if you’re not a Paleo head)

1 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
1 tbsp fresh mint
1/4 cup diced cucumber
1/2 lemon – zested
pinch S&P to taste

Mix all above ingredients together and serve with grilled Lamb. This works really well with it. Cool and refreshing. (Sounds like a toothpaste commercial!)
