Recipe

Skewered pieces of lamb served with a tomato vinaigrette.

Yield: 6 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins, Plus Marinating
Cooking time: 10 Mins

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds, toasted
  • 2¼ lb (1kg) boneless leg of lamb, cut into 1½ in (3.5cm) chunks
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 5 ripe tomatoes, skinned, seeded, and chopped
  • 6 tbsp coarsely chopped cilantro

Special Equipment:

  • Wooden skewers

Directions

1. Crush the coriander seeds in a mortar and pestle. Place with the lamb, ¼ cup oil, 1 tsp honey, 2 garlic cloves, and the lemon zest in a bowl. Season with pepper and mix. Cover and chill for 2 hours.

2. Whisk together the vinegar with the remaining ½ cup oil, 1 tsp honey, and 2 garlic cloves. Add the tomatoes and cilantro and mix.

3. Preheat the broiler. Thread the meat onto the skewers. Season with salt. Broil, turning, about 7 minutes for medium-rare meat. Serve with the tomato vinaigrette.

Notes

Caution: Soak the skewers in water for one hour before using to prevent burning.
