lightbulb_outline Tips

  • chevron_rightIf using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 30 minutes before threading the lamb to prevent them from burning on the grill.
  • chevron_rightFor extra flavor, add some sliced red onion and bell peppers to the skewers along with the lamb.
  • chevron_rightIf you don't have a grill, you can also cook the lamb souvlaki on a stovetop grill pan or under the broiler in your oven.
  • chevron_rightMake sure to let the lamb rest after grilling to allow the juices to redistribute and ensure a tender and juicy result.
