Lamb skewers with rosemary-garlic and grilled marrow

Lamb skewers or lamb in general was never a regular meal in our families. If it was on the table it was mostly during the festive season where it would be a whole leg or shoulder and hours and hours of work went into cooking the meat without any special equipment.

ingredients for lamb skewers dish

You can prepare this grilled lamb skewer recipe partially in advance and it will be quick to finish for dinner.

We use marrow in this recipe; we haven’t seen them much in Europe, but you can substitute with courgettes as they come from the same family. In reality marrows are fruit but mostly used as vegetables.

It is not essential, but when serving this dish, we recommend our homemade tzatziki, so you’ll add  a refreshing Greek flavour.
