Step 1

If using wooden skewers, soak them in water ahead of time, per their instructions. I use stainless steel skewers.

Preheat oven to 350 or broil, your choice.

In a large bowl, mix together ingredients, careful to not overwork the lamb.
Set aside 10 minutes at room temperature to let flavors combine.

Portion meat mixture into fourths {I use my hand to even out the mixture and score a + over the top to divide equally}.

Gently press a portion of lamb mixture onto each skewer. Alternatively, you can shape the meat first and thread the skewer through and reshape as needed.

Brush each with a little olive oil and place on a baking rack on a sheet pan.

Broil: Put under broiler for about 7 minutes, flip and continue cooking 8-10 minutes.

Bake: Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.

Serve immediately.
