Lamb and Pearl Onion Skewers


600 grs of lamb thinly cut (ask your butcher for a tender piece), 2 garlic cloves, 1 cup of red wine, 1 cup of water, 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon of sweet red ground paprika, 1 teaspoon of hot red ground paprika, 1 teaspoon of dry oregano, 1 bay leave, 1 tablespoon of cumin seeds, salt and black ground pepper. One red pepper and one green pepper.

Peel the garlic cloves and chop thinly. Place in a big bowl together with the wine, water, olive oil, the paprika, oregano, chopped bay leave, cumin and pepper. Mix well.

  • Clean the lamb meat and take the fat away and place inside the bowl. Let marinate for at least 4 hours. I had mine in the fridge overnight and cooked the next day. Meat will be more tender the longer it marinates.
  • If you use wooden sticks, have them soaking in water so that they don’t burn when you cook the skewers.
  • Insert lamb slices and pearl onion with the stick.
  • Cook in your barbecue or in the griddle or grill in your oven until they get golden. While cooking, pour some of the marinating liquid on top and turn so that they get all done.
  • Add your favorite sauce.  I used red curry coconut sauce.
  • Enjoy!
