2 tbsp Vegetable Oil

1 Medium onion, quartered

1 cloves Garlic, peeled

4 sprigs Fresh parsley

1 tbsp Cumin

1/2 tsp Lemon zest

3 tbsp Lemon juice

1 tbsp Kosher salt

1 1/4 lbs American lamb loin chops, cut into 1in cubes (leg, should or stew meat)

Sesame Sauce

1 cup Greek yogurt

3 tbsp Tahini

1 tbsp Lemon juice

Salt & pepper, to taste


1 tsp Sesame seeds

1 tsp Cumin seeds

1 tbsp Pomegarnate seeds

1 tbsp Fresh parsley, chopped

Warm pita, serving

Grilled lemons


1In a blender, combine the oil, onion, garlic, parsley, cumin, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt and puree until smooth. Transfer the marinade to a resealable plastic bag and add the lamb. Seal and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or preferably overnight.

2Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Drain the lamb, shaking off the excess marinade. Thread the lamb onto 4 long skewers. Grill over high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly charred, about 5 minutes for medium-rare meat.

Sesame Sauce

1Add yogurt, tahini and lemon juice to a large bowl and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

2In a small skillet, toast the sesame seeds and cumin seeds until fragrant.

3Spread the sesame sauce on a large serving plate and drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle with toasted seeds, pomegranate seeds and parsley. Arrange the grilled lamb skewers on top. Serve.
