In this Persian dish, cubes of lamb are marinated in garlic, lime and saffron, threaded onto skewers, grilled on the barbecue and served with grilled tomatoes.
Sumac comes from dried berries that are grown in the Mediterranean. They taste sour and fruity. You can find them in Middle Eastern speciality shops or online.
Absolutely Delicous! My whole family loved this recipe. This was the best lamb kabob I ever had. One thing I did different was, while the kabob was on the grill I brushed some melted butter on both sides of the kabob. That helped the kabob to not get burned so easily and it made the kabob juicy. This recipe is a keeper. This kabob was better than a Persian restaurant. - 23 Apr 2017
This was very easy and came out great! I marinated the lamb overnight. I also used little grape tomatoes and alternated lamb and tomato on the skewer. Served with rice and a salad. My boyfriend loved it and I will definitely make it again. - 05 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The marinade is delicious with grilled chicken breasts. - 10 Jan 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
