Now there’s a spice you probably have never heard of. When buying, it IS a spice. Some companies, however, add salt to the mix so be very careful when salting your foods. Read the label.
In a bowl, combine:
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 2 tsp. sumac
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 2 tbsp. chopped flat leaf parsley
Mix thoroughly and shape into a roll. Wrap in saran and refrigerate.
- 1 1/4 lbs. ground lamb
- 1/2 small onion, grated
- 1 large egg
- cinnamon, coriander and cumin to taste
- 3 tbsp. pine nuts, toasted
Preheat the barbecue. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Shape into 8 sausages and thread onto skewers.
Grill the kebabs for 4 minutes each side and serve with 2 butter “coins”.
Couscous and a salad make two wonderful side dishes for the lamb. Enjoy.
