Lemon and rosemary lamb kebabs

Lemon and rosemary lamb kebabs



Prep Time


Cook Time



600 g lamb eye of shortloin/backstrap

3 red onions, cut into small wedges

2 cloves garlic, crushed

juice and rind of 1 lemon

1 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves, chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

capsicum, Roma tomatoes, red onions and mixed salad greens, balsamic vinegar and lemon wedges to serve


  • Cut lamb into 2.5cm cubes. Thread lamb and red onion wedges alternatively onto 8 skewers with 4 to 5 pieces of lamb on each skewer.
  • Combine garlic, rind, lemon juice, rosemary and oil. Brush over the kebabs. Marinate for 20 minutes, if possible.
  • Preheat the barbecue char-grill plate or pan to moderately-hot before adding the lamb kebabs. Let the kebabs cook on one side until moisture appears before you turn. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Remove kebabs from the heat and cover loosely with foil, rest kebabs for 3 minutes before serving. Serve kebabs with salad vegetables including capsicum, Roma tomatoes, red onions and mixed salad greens with balsamic vinegar and lemon wedges.


  • When you're threading the lamb kebabs, don't pack the lamb on too tightly; leave a little space between the pieces so the heat can get to all sides.
  • Kebabs with cubed meat take about two minutes for each of the four sides. Total cooking time is about 8 minutes. Don't turn them too often; turn them once to cook each side
