Smokey Joe's Lamb Souvlaki
These Greek-inspired kebabs are perfect served with pita bread, lemon wedges and Tzatziki. Thanks Joe Camilleri from Smokey Joe's Meat Rubs for sharing this perfect lamb recipe with us.
500g diced lamb
1⁄4 cup olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
juice of 1 lemon
10 metal or wooden skewers
1-2 tbs Smokey Joe's Souvlaki Rub
To prepare the marinade for the lamb kebab. In a large bowl add the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice along with 1-2 tbs of Smokey Joes Souvlaki Rub. Whisk all the ingredients to combine.
Add the meat and massage the rub intro the meat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, chill and let marinade for at least 4 hours. It’s best to leave the meat for the lamb souvlaki marinade overnight, to soak up all the wonderful flavours,
To assemble the lamb souvlaki, you can either use wooden or metal skewers. For this lamb souvlaki recipe, you will need about 5-6 skewers, depending on the size of each souvlaki. If using wooden skewers soak them in water. (This will prevent them from burning.) Thread the pieces, comfortably, on the skewers.
Prior to gilling, don’t forget to season your lamb souvlaki with sea salt.
Heat a grill, barbecue or griddle pan and cook the lamb kebab for about 10-15 minutes, until cooked to your liking.
Enjoy this delicious Greek lamb souvlaki recipe with warm pita bread and tzatziki sauce with a nice refreshing Greek feta salad.
Serve in the Pita bread with fresh salad, Tzatziki and lemon wedges
