Easy and Delicious Lamb Kebab Recipes

Some ingredients suit certain recipes better — this is the case with lamb and kebab (also spelled kabob or kabab depending on country of origin). While kebabs (originating in the Middle East) work well with beef, chicken, and even fish, there's no denying that lamb, the original kebab meat, is exceptional when grilled or broiled and pairs well with the typical roster of spices such as cumin, sumac, cinnamon, paprika, cayenne, and cardamom.  

And even though kebabs are typically skewered, lamb kebab has evolved to fit alternative cooking methods, including roasting and pan-frying. Lamb kebab recipes from around the world, including kofta, souvlaki, koobideh, and sosaties, are some of the best ways to eat lamb.  

Here are a few of our favorite lamb recipes. Try any of the recipes using Halal Meat for the most flavourful and juicy Halal lamb kebab

 Kofta Kebabs 

Ground lamb is mixed with finely chopped garlic, onion, parsley, coriander, cumin, cinnamon, allspice, cayenne pepper, ginger, and black pepper. Form the spiced lamb around the skewer firmly and then grill. Serve with roasted vegetables and rice. 

 Lamb Souvlaki Marinated Kebab 

This classic recipe uses tender marinated pieces of lamb threaded on skewers and char-grilled to perfection. Ingredients for marinade include olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours, or overnight. Serve with Greek salad and pita bread. 

 Summer Lamb Kebabs 

This summer try something a bit different and add fruit to your grilled lamb kebabs. Morsels of lamb are soaked overnight in a marinade of mustard, vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, sage, and garlic, then skewered and grilled with pineapple. You can also add mushrooms, onion, and peppers as well for a well-rounded flavor profile. 

This recipe combines mint, cilantro, ginger paste, paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin, and coriander — to make kebabs with an unforgettable taste. Remember to finely chop the ingredients so the kebabs won't fall apart.
