Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1/4 tsp salt 1 g
1/4 tsp ground pepper 1 g

Before you start

The lamb can be cooked using either a broiler in the oven or an outdoor grill. Metal skewers are needed for cooking.

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.

Method

Marinate

  1. In a shallow dish, mix the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, and minced or pressed garlic. Cut the lamb into pieces and add them to the dish, turning them to coat well. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours, turning the pieces once.

Grill or broil

  1. Heat the grill to medium. Place the lamb pieces on to metal skewers. Grill until the lamb is medium-rare and lightly charred on the surface, about 10-12 min, brushing with more marinade as needed. Alternatively, preheat the broiler. Put the lamb pieces on the rack of a broiler pan, 10-12 cm from heat. Broil 12-14 min total for medium-rare, turning them over once. In the meantime, wrap the bread in foil and put in lower third of oven to warm up.
  2. When the lamb pieces are ready, transfer them to a cutting board, cover with aluminum foil and let stand 5 min before serving with the tsatsiki sauce and gluten-free bread.
