Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mash garlic into a paste with salt using a mortar and pestle or the flat side of a chef's knife on your cutting board. Mix garlic into lamb with onion, parsley, coriander, cumin, cinnamon, allspice, cayenne pepper, ginger, and pepper in a mixing bowl until well blended. Form mixture into 28 balls. Form each ball around the tip of a skewer, flattening it into a 2-inch oval; repeat with remaining skewers. Place kebabs onto a baking sheet, cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 12 hours.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Cook skewers on the preheated grill, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 5 to 6 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a kebab should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). 

Tips

The most affordable way to purchase the spices is in bulk at either a health food store or an Asian or Middle-Eastern market.

Serve with yogurt, flatbread, lettuce, tomato, and cucumber.
