Ingredients

  • 3 lbs. Semi bone in leg of Aussie lamb cut into 1 ½ inch chunks
  • 1 cup parsley
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • ½ cup mint
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • zest of one lemon
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon red chile flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  • Combine the parsley, cilantro, mint, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, smoked paprika, cumin, red chile flakes, coriander and salt in a food processor or blender. 
  • Using on/off turns, blend the mixture until it is semi smooth. Scrape down the bowl or jar after pulsing once or twice to make sure all the ingredients are blended. 
  • Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning. The flavor will be sharp but will mellow and smooth out as the sauce sits. 
  • Reserve ½ cup of the sauce.
  • Place the lamb in a bowl and drizzle with the remaining sauce, tossing to coat.
  • refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight if possible.
  • Soak 8 - 10 wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes.
  • Thread the meat onto the skewers and set aside.
  • Either build a charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill to medium-high heat. When the fire/grill is ready, add the lamb and grill, turning after 2 - 3 minutes. 
  • Continue grilling for another 3 - 5 minutes until the lamb reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees - the lamb should be nice and pink inside!
  • Take care not to overcook the lamb! 
  • Remove the skewers and serve, passing the remaining sauce.
