1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh mint (or 1/2 tsp. dried)
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
How to Make It
Mix together lamb, onion, olive oil, cumin, 1 tsp. each salt and pepper, and cinnamon. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Make sauce: Combine yogurt, mint, garlic, lemon juice, and 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper.
Preheat broiler to high and place rack 2 inches from heat source. Thread lamb tightly onto metal skewers. Place on broiler pan and broil, turning once, until well-browned but slightly pink within, about 6 minutes total for medium (cut a piece open to test). If you prefer medium-well, cook for 8 minutes; for well-done, cook for 10 minutes.
Serve immediately, accompanied by yogurt-mint sauce.
If you like lamb and different flavors, then this recipe is top! The spices are not too strong to take away from the meat, just right.
In the yogurt mint sauce you can add some finely chopped persian cucambers.
I served with honey-glazed carrots and rice (just like the picture). It was a hit :)
