Skewered kefta

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
10 ounces Ground lamb
2 tablespoons Minced onion
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh mint or 1 1/2 teaspoon dried mint
¼ teaspoon Each ground cumin, ground marjoram, salt, and pepper
2 teaspoons Olive oil
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
½ Garlic clove, minced
¼ teaspoon Paprika

In medium bowl combine lamb, onion, parsley, mint, cumin, marjoram, salt, and pepper; mix well. Divide lamb mixture into 4 equal portions. Form each portion into a sausage shape, pressing each onto a 12-inch wooden or metal skewer; transfer skewers to rack in broiling pan.

In measuring cup or small bowl combine oil, lemon juice, garlic, and paprika; using pastry brush, brush oil mixture over keftas, coating all sides. Broil, turning once, until keftas are browned on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Makes 2 servings, 2 skewers each.
