Companion recipe: Herb-Wine Marinade


Trim the lamb and cut into 1-inch cubes. Prepare the marinade as directed in a glass or ceramic bowl, add the lamb and stir well. Cover and marinate for at least 2 hours, or for several hours in refrigerator. Stir occasionally.

Thread the lamb onto flat metal skewers, alternating cubes with your choice of bay leaves, rosemary, mushroom caps, cherry tomatoes and pepper squares. Place the marinade in a small saucepan and add the oil.

Heat the barbecue to hot and place the filled skewers on the oiled grill. Cook until browned on all sides, basting kebabs frequently with marinade. Reduce the heat to low or move to outer section of charcoal barbecue, put hood down and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. If lamb is slightly resilient when pressed with tongs, it is cooked to medium-do not overcook.

Serve with rice pilaf, a tossed salad of mixed greens and crusty bread.
