Connecticut BBQ Marinated Lamb Kebabs with Mint Pesto.

We like to entertain and this recipe is perfect for it since you can prepare it before hand and then just a simple grill. Serve with herb rice or rustic bread is perfect. Enjoy.

We get our boneless leg of lamb from Costco, it usually comes 4 to 5 pounds and an affordable price of $5.99 per pound, and you will need to trim off the fat and tissue.

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil   

1/4 cup white wine
4 large garlic cloves, minced

½ teaspoon pepper4 large tablespoons of chopped fresh rosemaryCt Lamb Kebabs

 2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt

1 lemon for juice
1 teaspoons coriander powder
4 to 5 pounds trimmed boneless leg of lamb, cut into 1 1/4-inch cubes
3 large red & Green bell peppers, cut into 1 1/4-inch squares

2 large red onion, cut into 1 1/4-inch squares


Mint Pesto

1/2 cup (packed) fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons pine nuts
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 medium garlic clove, peeled
1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
1/2 cup (or more) extra-virgin olive oil

6 to 8 metal skewers or 8 to 10 bamboo

For pesto

Hi David.  It sounds wonderful.  I have a friend who loves lamb.  I will share your recipe with him.  Thanks.

I love lamb. I've copied this one down. I may use it as one of my recipes of the month in my prospecting / farming area. Thanks much. Of course, I'll have to sample it first :)

Have a good day!

Sounds really good. Seldom eat lamb, just too expensive for the little bit of meat you get.

This dish makes great left overs as well. $5.99/lb is not a bad price for boneless meat when comparied to beef or fish.
