These lamb kebabs are full of everything I love. Super simple to make and healthy, these are perfect for a lazy dinner in the backyard. Can you resist the deliciousness loaded in every bite? To be honest, I can’t.
First, choose the perfect cut of lamb. I decided to go with leg roast, as I find it easier to cut out mini cubes of meat that are perfect for tikka.
Second, the marinade. A two step marination process make this tikka amazingly flavorful and delicious. The first part is allowing the meat to soak in lemon juice to make them tender and succulent. The second part is coating them in a flavorful marinade.
Now, the fun part. Thread them onto skewers and let them sizzle away on a grill or barbecue.
This lamb tikka makes an utterly delicious combo with peach salsa. To be exact, it’s match made in heaven. A combo that’s totally addicting and drool-worthy. Again, you can add more veggies like onions, bell peppers (capsicum), cherry tomatoes and mushrooms to the skewers.
