It’s time to fire up the grill and celebrate Dad! You have all summer to enjoy hot dogs and hamburgers so why not treat Dad to something special this Father’s Day instead? These lamb kabobs are the perfect choice and go to show that the simplest things are often the best. The traditional marinade does all the work for you, leaving you with plenty of time to relax and hang with the family.
- 2 lbs. lamb leg or shoulder, cubed
- 5-6 tablespoons olive oil
- juice of one lemon
- two garlic cloves, crushed and minced
- one tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
- one teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
- salt and pepper
Cube up the lamb meat while trimming off any thick fat pieces.
Mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano thyme and paprika. Wait to season with salt and pepper until the meat goes on the grill.
Add the cubed lamb to the marinade and marinate overnight.
The next day, skewer the cubed meat along with any peppers, onions or other vegetables you want to grill.
Once the grill is hot, add the skewers, cooking for roughly 5-7 minutes on each side. Serve with rice or pita, grilled veggies, olives, feta cheese, yogurt, etc.
