Curry-Yogurt Marinated Lamb Kebabs



  • 2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, cut into 1 ½-inch pieces

  • 2 large zucchini, cut into 1 ½-inch pieces

  • 2 large summer squash, cut into 1 ½-inch pieces

  • 1 cup whole milk yogurt, preferably Greek-style

  • Zest and juice of 1/2 lime

  • ½ teaspoon honey

  • ½ teaspoon curry powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander

  • 2 tablespoons finely minced onion

  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh mint leaves

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Place lamb, zucchini, and summer squash in a large shallow baking dish or resealable plastic bag. In a medium bowl, stir together yogurt, lime zest and juice, honey, curry powder, coriander, onion, and mint. Season with salt and pepper. Pour marinade over lamb mixture; toss to coat. Let marinate, covered, in refrigerator at least 6 hours and up to 24. Soak skewers in water.

  2. Thread skewers with lamb, others with zucchini, and others with summer squash; discard marinade. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Heat a grill pan to medium-high and grill lamb skewers until cooked to medium, about 4 minutes each side, and zucchini and squash skewers, turning frequently, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
