Exactly what does one make for dinner when you’re feeding your six siblings and their spouses, along with their many, many (and I mean MANY) offspring? Let’s ask Nana.
Nana sez: Make lemony lamb kebabs! They are super easy to marinate and thread onto skewers and because the meat is cut up into small pieces, it grills really fast. I guess the trick is to make sure you have enough skewers.
You can always use those wooden ones that you buy in the supermarket (make sure you soak them for a good 10-15 minutes before you use them so they don’t catch on fire), or you can find some of these wild numbers in your dad’s garage. Or on eBay, whatever. Don’t tell my dad, but I used to play with these skewers like they were swords. En garde!
Nana’s recipe recommends you thread the meat with a lemon wedge, onion and bell pepper. I used some cut up zucchini on a few also, just ’cause it was there. I recommend you serve these with some lovely saffron-scented rice and a salad or some more grilled veggies.
Like eggplant. I love grilled eggplant. But that is another blog post. Make these kebabs. They are delicious and meaty and lemony. They have ‘summer bbq’ written all over them.
