Serves 6

2 pounds boneless lamb, cut into 1-inch chunks

1 head garlic, 4 cloves finely chopped

1 bunch fresh mint, coarsely chopped

1 bunch fresh parsley, coarsely chopped

½ cup extra virgin olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

Chopped zest of 1 lemon

2 lemons, thinly sliced

2 baby artichokes, cut into quarters

Sea salt

  1. Combine the lamb, chopped garlic, mint, parsley, olive oil, pepper, and lemon zest in a shallow bowl. Mix well. Let marinate for at least 45 minutes, or up to 8 hours, in the refrigerator.
  2. Prepare a fire in a grill. Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Leaving at least 1 inch on each end of the skewer free, alternate pieces of lamb, sliced lemon, and artichoke onto each skewer. Lightly season with salt.
  4. Grill over medium-high heat until lamb is medium rare (about 4 minutes each side). Cut the remaining lemon (the one used for the zest) in half and squeeze juice over each skewer. Serve immediately.
