Editor’s Note: For some, lamb itself may be an exotic option.

Adding mint yogurt to this meat preparation is still more adventurous. This recipe, provided by Over the Fire Cooking via American Lamb, sounds delicious to us and we suggest you give it a try, rather than whatever prosaic meat choice you might be thinking of grilling this week. Serve with a Merlot or Rhône-style blend from Washington and live a little!


Zesty Lamb Kebabs with Mint Yogurt Sauce


Lamb Kebab Ingredients:

1 Boneless American Lamb Leg trimmed & cubed

3 Garlic Cloves minced

1 tbsp of Dill finely chopped

1 tbsp of Onion Powder

1 tbsp of Cumin

2 tsp of Cinnamon

2 tsp of Coriander

1 Lemon juiced

Salt & Black Pepper to taste

Olive Oil


Mint Yogurt Sauce Ingredients:

1 cup of Plain Yogurt

1 tbsp of Mint chopped

2 Garlic Cloves pressed

1 Lemon juiced

Salt & Pepper to taste



In a bowl, add all the spices & herbs for the American Lamb Kebab but leave out the cubed lamb. Mix thoroughly and pour a small portion of the marinade into a small bowl. Use this later for grilling. Add cubed lamb to the large batch of marinade and mix. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours.

Build a fire in your grill or fire pit for direct cooking. Make at medium to medium-high heat.

Pull out marinated lamb and skewer. Place skewers over the fire and let cook for about 5-6 minutes per side or until the internal temperature hits 130-135F for medium rare. Lather the kebabs with the reserve spices & herbs marinade that did not touch the lamb.

While kebabs are cooking, mix all ingredient for the Mint Yogurt Sauce.

Pull kebabs off grill and let rest for 4-5 minutes. Top with Mint Yogurt Sauce or dip.
