Great morning this morning, if you wake up every morning is a great morning!
We link up with Sara our Feisty Foodie in the last hour today, up in the wilds of Canada, well Ontario.
Lamb Spiedini (Skinny lamb skewers)
These make a great appetizer or serve as part of a grilled meat platter!
Juice of 2 lemons (approx 5 tablespoons lemon juice)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 lb boneless sirloin lamb chops, cut into 1-inch pieces
Long wooden skewers
Salt & pepper
- Prepare barbecue or grill (medium-high heat)
- Whisk lemon juice, olive oil, rosemary, garlic and grated lemon peel in glass pie dish to blend (set aside a small amount to brush lamb with). Sprinkle lamb with salt and pepper; add lamb to marinade and toss to coat. Let mixture stand 10-15 minutes, tossing occasionally.
- Thread lamb onto about 5-6 inches of your skewers leaving at least 5-6 inches on the bottle and an inch or so on top. Cook until desired doneness (medium rare or rare) for approximate 10-12 minutes, coating with additional marinade.
TIP: Soak your wooden skewers in water for 5 minutes before threading
ALTERNATIVE: Cut red onion, red pepper and yellow pepper into 1 inch pieces, and alternative meat and veggies on the skewers
Delicious served with garlic lemon roasted potatoes and a village Greek salad. You can also serve these the Tzatziki recipe I posted a few weeks ago.
