Step 1

In a large bowl, whisk the marinade ingredients. Add the lamb and artichoke hearts and turn to coat thoroughly. Cover and let marinate at room temperature for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Prepare the grill for direct cooking over med heat.

In a small bowl whisk the sauce ingredients until smooth and emulsified. Set aside at room temperature until ready to serve.

Thread the lamb and artichokes onto skewers, beginning and ending with an artichoke piece and with at least two pieces of lamb together wherever possible (this will keep the meat juicy). Discard the marinade.

Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the skewers over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until well marked and medium rare, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once. Transfer the skewers to a platter and drizzle with the sauce. Top with the whole parsley leaves and serve immediately with lemon wedges and rice, if desired.
