These grilled kebabs are made with ground lamb and a variety of spices for a delicious taste of Middle Eastern flavour.

Prep Time: 10 minutes ■ Cook Time: 6 minutes ■ Total Time: 16 minutes


  • 16 wooden skewers, pre-soaked in water for 20 minutes
  • 1/4 cup onion, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lb ground lamb


  1. In a large bowl, mix together onion, garlic, parsley, spices, salt and pepper. Add the ground lamb and mix until just combined.
  2. Divide the meat into 16 sections. Mold each section of meat around a skewer, making it a few inches long and about 1-inch thick so that it is oval-shaped.
  3. Place skewers on a shallow baking pan, cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 12 hours.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates lightly. Grill the kebabs, turning occasionally, until brown all over and just cooked through, about 6 minutes.

Serve lamb kofta kebabs with tzatziki, hummus, and flatbreads.
