BBQ Lamb Kebobs with Garlic Sauce

Featured by CJ Pask Winery in the International Wine Club.

Ingredients

1 lb. lamb loin
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. sea salt
Wooden skewers soaked in water for 30 min.
1 bulb of garlic peeled
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. sea salt

Instructions

Cut the lamb into bite-size pieces and trim fat off if necessary. In a large non-reactive bowl, mix the olive oil, crushed garlic, lemon juice, paprika and cinnamon. Mix well and then add the lamb. Coat lamb thoroughly and then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or even overnight.

Prepare the garlic sauce. Peel the garlic and place cloves in a blender. Add the lemon juice and start to blend. You may from time to time have to stop and push the garlic down with a spoon if it sticks to the side. Add the salt and continue to blend. Now add the olive oil in a slow stream while continuing to blend. The sauce should have the consistency of mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate garlic sauce until you need it.

Once you're ready to cook the lamb, skewer the lamb pieces. Heat the barbecue or grill over a medium-high heat. Cook the lamb skewers in batches for 1 1/2 minutes each side, or until slightly charred. Serve with a salad or fresh, crusty bread.
