Paleo Grilled Greek Lamb Skewers

What is it about food on sticks that makes them so darn fun and yummy? Grilling season is in full swing, and I’m enjoying every bit of it because I love grilling and it adds so much flavor! If you agree, you need to keep reading because you’ll absolutely love this recipe.

I’m a huge fan of lamb, and it’s what I usually get at a restaurant if it’s an option. It’s just so flavorful and feels fancy, but in reality, it’s actually very easy to cook at home and quite forgiving and still tender if you end up overcooking it a bit. One of the newer Trader Joe’s products is grass fed lamb, so we’ve been enjoying it more often than usual and the husband and I have been loving it. And our recent favorite way to cook lamb is this grilled Greek lamb skewers!

The Greek marinade is what really makes this recipe shine because it’s just so flavorful with a salty, lemony punch. I highly recommend you marinate overnight because it truly makes a difference! I plan to keep this recipe in my weekly rotation, because we honestly couldn’t get enough.

You can use any veggies (or none at all) for this recipe that are appropriate for grilling. Zucchini, bell peppers, and onions are some of my favorites, but eggplants, tomatoes, or anything else that’s hardy enough to withstand direct heat from the grill can work.

Don’t have a grill? Try broiling it! All these Greek lamb skewers needs is a hot, direct heat for a short time, and it’ll be cooked in no time. Hope you bookmark this one to make this summer because it’s definitely a winner!

Okay, so I know it’s Fall and all, but it was in the 80s all throughout the weekend and I think you can grill any time of the year. Also, I teased about sharing this curry chicken skewers recipe for months both on Snapchat and Instagram Stories so here it is (FINALLY)!

I love food on skewers. They are super fun, but more importantly, they are so easy to make. Most of the time, the steps are: season or marinate, thread food on stick, then cook. Um… can we have skewers everyday please? Honestly, it’s so delicious!

Paleo Curry Chicken SkewersThese curry chicken skewers tastes best cooked on the grill, but you can also use the broiling method if you don’t own a grill. I’m just obsessed with the smoky flavor and the char you can get from grilling just about anything so I will always prefer that method.

Also, I honestly don’t think you’ll have to scale down on the curry if you aren’t a fan of spicy. It’s mild enough to satisfy anyone’s taste buds, and in fact, I recommend you add more curry paste if you like spicy. Since C can’t handle to much spice and I LURVE spicy, I cook most meals mild and add more spice to my plate right before serving. I’m so happy with how these turned out, so I hope you make them!
