Mediterranean Kabobs

Spice rubs are an easy way to quickly add dynamic flavor to meat and vegetables, especially before grilling. Look for them on the shelves with other spices and near the meat and fish counters.

  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons Mediterranean spice rub
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 pound lean lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 large red bell peppers, cored, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces (optional)

In a bowl, combine oil, lemon juice, spice rub, and garlic to make a marinade. Transfer 1/4 cup of the marinade to a small bowl, cover, and refrigerate to use for basting later. Pour remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag and add lamb. Seal bag, turn to coat, and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

Brush grill rack with olive oil or use nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade from lamb. Alternately thread lamb, peppers, zucchini, and onions onto skewers to make kabobs.

Grill kabobs, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. Baste with reserved marinade, then continue basting and cooking for 8 to 10 minutes longer, or until meat reaches desired doneness and vegetables are tender. Transfer to a large platter and serve with lemon halves.
