Yogurt-Marinated Lamb Kebabs

Yield 2 servings (serving size: 2 kebabs and 1 cup couscous)
Kebabs create a mouthwatering variation to the routine appearance of your dinner plate, and they're more time-friendly. Because they cook so fast, you'll be able to enjoy your guests instead of standing over a hot grill.


  • 1/2 pound lean boneless leg of lamb
  • 1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups (1-inch) sliced zucchini
  • 6 large cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, cut into 4 wedges
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups cooked couscous

How to Make It

  1. Trim fat from lamb. Cut lamb into 1-inch pieces.

  2. Combine yogurt and next 7 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add lamb; seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove lamb from bag, reserving marinade.

  3. Thread lamb, zucchini, tomatoes, and onion wedges alternately onto 4 (10-inch) skewers.

  4. Prepare grill.

  5. Place kebabs on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 7 minutes on each side or until done, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Serve kebabs with couscous.

  6. Note: If using wooden skewers, soak them in water 30 minutes before grilling.
