Grilled Lamb Kebabs

by - 11:32 AM

Last week I finally had some time to cook and try out some new recipes I'd been eyeing. I follow Chobani on Instagram (you should too!) and they always post the most delish looking recipes.

I decided to try their Lamb on the Barbie recipe which uses Chobani yogurt for the tzatziki sauce and it was hands down one of my favorite meals I've made on my grill this summer.

Super flavorful. I also added some fresh dill from our CSA to the sauce and it was perfection.

Grilled Lamb Kebabs with Chobani Tzatziki Sauce

Ingredients

Kebabs: 

  • Approx 1 lb lamb fillet, cubed (ask your butcher to cube for you!)
  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 Tbsp dried oregano
  • - OR - Mediterranean Seasoning (I used one from The Spice House)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Whole wheat pita (optional)
  • Skewers (I used wooden)


Tzatziki: 

  • 1 small cucumber
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Fresh dill
  • 1 Tbsp chopped mint
  • 1 C 2% Plain Chobani Greek Yogurt
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning


Instructions

1. If using wooden skewers, soak in warm water for about 15 minutes to prevent burning.

2. Preheat grill on high.

3. Cut zucchini and onion in chunks and skewer with lamb cubes and tomatoes alternating. FGK Tip: Use double skewers for a sturdier kebab.

4. Stir in oregano and parsley with a generous amount of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Brush on kebabs before grilling and place aside.

5. Slice the top of the cucumber and grate it with a fine grater until you get about 1/4 to halfway down the cucumber. Add in any excess juice from the cucumber.

6. Combine the minced garlic, olive oil, salt, mint and yogurt. Mix well and season with more salt and pepper if needed.

7. Place kebabs on grill for about 2-3 minutes each side, time may be more or less depending on the cut of lamb.

8. Remove kebabs from grill and place on a plate to serve with tzatziki and pita. Enjoy!

I also served with a side of tabouleh salad that I picked up at our local market. Will definitely be making this again this summer!

Up later this week...I head to Allyu Spa for a chakra rebalancing session. What does that entail? No idea, but I'll be sure to share with you after.
