Grilling has been the most common method of preparing meat in Israel, Jordan and Yemen, by Sefardics since antiquity.
Kebabs of spiced ground lamb are typical in these two countries and served with Pita Bread, hot pepper relish, called SHARA, a Yemenite sauce, similar to a Harissa however made with tomato.
This recipe pairs lovely with a chilled Rosé or cold beer of choice.
1 1/4 pounds of lamb ground
3/4 cup onion or shallots finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped Italian style parsley herb
4 garlic cloves minced
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp black freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper flakes
12 bamboo skewers or metal skewers
smoked paprika 1/2 tsp.
olive oil extra virgin
warm pita bread
Shara - Hot Pepper Relish
1) combine the ground lamb, onion or shallot, parsley, cilantro, garlic, salt, cayenne, smoked paprika, black pepper in a medium sized bowl
2) cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours so that the spices and herbs can absorb with the lamb
3) preheat and prepare your oven broiler or your grill
4) form hefty 3 Inch long sausage shaped lamb Yemenite kebabs
5) place these lamb sausages on the skewers
6) brush the kebabs with olive oil
7) grill the kebabs until brown and have cooked through
8) turn frequently, 10 to 12 mins.
