20 minutes

plus overnight marinating




  • 5 cloves 5 garlic, crushed

  • ¾ cup ¾ extra virgin olive oil

  • Juice and grated zest of 2 lemons

  • 4 sprigs 4 rosemary, leaves chopped

  • 1 kg 1 boneless lamb shoulder, cut into 2-3cm pieces

  • Salt and pepper, to season

  • Long rosemary branches, leaves removed (for skewers)

  • Coriander leaves, to garnish

  • Grilled pita bread and couscous salad, to serve (see couscous recipe here)

  • Garlic Yoghurt
  • ¾ cup ¾ natural thickened yoghurt

  • 1 clove 1 garlic, crushed

  • 2 Tbsp 2 lemon juice


  • Mix garlic, oil, lemon juice and zest, and chopped rosemary in a large bowl.
  • Add lamb, toss to coat, and leave to marinate for at least 1 hour or preferably overnight.
  • To make garlic yoghurt, combine yoghurt, garlic and lemon juice in a bowl and season with salt. Set aside in the fridge.
  • Thread three to four pieces of lamb onto each rosemary branch.
  • Preheat the barbecue grill to medium heat.
  • Grill lamb skewers for 3 minutes, then turn and cook for a further 4 minutes or until lamb is just cooked through. For medium-rare, this will take approximately 8 minutes as it will continue to cook once you remove it from the barbecue.
  • Serve lamb skewers garnished with coriander, and with garlic yoghurt, toasted pita bread and couscous salad on the side.
