Grilled Greek Lamb Skewers 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!

Yummy Greek Marinade

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?

That’s okay, try broiling it! All these Greek lamb skewers need 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!
