Almond salsa verde offers a true taste of the Mediterranean alongside these zesty grilled lamb skewers.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs lamb tenderloin, trimmed of all fat and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1 cup fresh chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 2 Tbs fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 Tbs fresh chopped mint
  • 1 tsp each fresh oregano, chopped
  • 3 Tbs capers, chopped
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon wedges and fresh mint sprigs as a garnish

Directions

  • Soak bamboo or rosemary skewers in water for 30 minutes.
  • Place the lamb in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Toss together and let sit until you are ready to grill.
  • Preheat an oven to 350F. Place the almonds on a baking sheet and bake until light golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Chop the almonds coarsely.
  • In a bowl, stir together the almonds, parsley, chives, mint, oregano, capers, shallots, lemon zest, garlic, lemon juice, and extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Thread the lamb on the rosemary skewers, distributing evenly. Grill the lamb, turning occasionally, until the lamb is slightly firm to the touch, 6 to 8 minutes total.
  • To serve, place the skewers of lamb on a platter. Spoon the salsa verde into a small bowl and place it alongside. Garnish with lemon wedges and mint sprigs and serve immediately.
