Description

Grilled lamb kofta made with onion and spices and then shaped and skewered onto kebabs. A grain-free and paleo entree for spring grilling season.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium Spanish onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup finely chopped curly parsley
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 pound lean ground lamb (sub beef or turkey if you prefer)

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Mix onion, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, cinnamon, allspice and cloves in a medium bowl. Add lamb and gently knead with clean hands to combine, about 1 minute. Divide into 4 portions. Shape each portion into a 8-inch sausage shape. Thread meat onto a heavy metal skewer.
  3. Oil grill rack. Grill kebabs, turning every 3 to 4 minutes, until cooked through, 9 to 13 minutes. Let rest on a cutting board for 4 minutes before removing skewer and slicing.
