Spicy Honey Yogurt Lamb Kabobs

For these Spicy Honey Yogurt Lamb Kabobs I wanted a tender on the inside and flavorful and crispy edges on the outside. The yogurt spiced marinade along with the apricot and peppers make for one killer kabob!

  • 1 lb lamb loin chops meat trimmed
  • 1 medium onion grated and drained
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 preserved lemon peel diced fine
  • 20 dried apricots
  • red bell pepper
  • green bell pepper


  • Trim the lamb meat from the bone and remove the shiny skin that is tough even when cooked. Discard the fat. Cut meat into bite size pieces and set aside.
  • To save time I use a food processor, but you can easily use a cheese grater for this next process. Remove the skin from the onion, rough chop it and process until blender. Remove from processor and place in a sieve to drain. Press grated onion and extract onion water as much as possible. Place onion in small bowl.
  • To the onion add the yogurt, honey, olive oil, cinnamon cumin and diced fine preserved lemon. If you don't have preserved lemon feel free to zest half a lemon. Mix together, add the trimmed lamb meat and allow to marinate covered in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours minimum.
  • Preheat grill to 450°F. Cut the bell peppers into bite size pieces. Alternately skewer the lamb, apricot and bell peppers and set on a tray.
  • Coat the grill with oil on a old cloth and cook the skewers for 3 minutes on medium high each side. Serve immediately with steamed rice, couscous or whatever side you prefer.
