Units Scale
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 2 tbsp parsley, minced
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, minced
  • 1 tbsp preserved lemon, minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 lbs lamb shoulder or sirloin (boneless), cut into 1 inch cubes


  1. Make the marinade. In a large bowl, mix together the oil, onion, parsley, cilantro, lemon, and spices. 
  2. Marinate the lamb. Add the lamb to the marinade and refrigerate until ready to grill. 
  3. Thread the lamb onto the skewers. Prep the grill or stovetop grill surface. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side and continue to turn so they don’t burn, until the lamb is fully cooked (usually takes between 10-15 minutes).
