1 lb./450g. lean lamb
rosemary sprigs, bundle of 6-8" long stems
1 red bell pepper, deseeded
4 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 lemon, grated rind and juice
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Trim excess fat from the lamb meat and cut into large, even sized chunks - approximately 1" cubes.
Take one of the onions and grate or chop very finely. Then remove the juice by squeezing the chopped onion over a large, glass bowl. Combine the juice of this onion with the olive oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic clove, oregano and thyme. Add the lamb meat to liquid, tossing meat to marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours or overnight.
Divide the second onion into wedges or halves. Cut the red bell pepper into chunks. Remove the lamb meat from the marinade, reserving the marinade for basting. Thread the meat onto rosemary sprigs, starting at the base or bottom of sprig stems. Alternate with the onion and pieces of red bell peppers.
Crush any excess rosemary leaves and sprinkle as desired on lamb meat.
Grill for 8-10 minutes, turning and basting with the reserved marinade frequently. Serve immediately. Makes 4-6 servings.
For a completely delicious main dish - serve with saffron flavored rice.
