Fancy Lamb Kebabs

Lamb Kebabs

These lamb kebabs are perfect as a starter to be shared at gatherings or as the main protein with a side salad for a complete and balanced meal. They are also perfect to cook on a barbeque at summer parties or in pan to enjoy any time of the year!

Make these lamb kebabs a little more fancy than your usual bamboo skewer by spearing them on to a rosemary stalk – the grilled rosemary leaves at the end make them look a little extra festive too. 

This marinade works with many meat and vegetable combos so if lamb kebabs don’t take your fancy but chicken does – change it up to your liking.
