  • Mix oil, lemon juice, coriander, cumin, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper in small bowl. Place lamb cubes in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add marinade; turn to coat well

  • Refrigerate 30 minutes or longer for extra flavor. For the Mint Yogurt, mix yogurt, mint and coriander in small bowl until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to serve

  • Remove lamb from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Alternately thread lamb, tomatoes and onion onto skewers

  • Grill over medium-high heat 10 to 12 minutes or until desired doneness, turning occasionally. Serve with Mint Yogurt, if desired

Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tip:
• If using wooden skewers, soak thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with lamb and vegetables. This prevents them from burning when on the grill.
• Substitute 16 peeled shallots for the medium onion, if desired.
