For the lamb kebab

  • Add the mixture from the pan also along with the finely chopped parsley.
  • Mix thoroughly with your hands, until all of the ingredients are completely combined.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours to allow the meat to marinate. You can keep it in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
  • Scoop up 2-3 tablespoons of the meat mixture and knead with your hands.
  • Use 2 wooden skewers to “roll” out the meat so that it spreads out, lengthwise and press on it gently with your hands. This will help it cook all the way through.
  • Repeat the same process with the remaining meat mixture until you have created 6 kebabs.
  • Place a grill pan over high heat and let it get very hot.
  • Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the kebabs so that they don’t stick to the pan while cooking.
