Lamb is an extremely healthy meat that's high in iron and zinc and has some beneficial fats that are anti-inflammatory. Not to mention that it marinates well and tastes delicious! Serve these lamb skewers with some quinoa and sauteed greens for a perfectly balanced meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 pound lamb leg steak
  • Bamboo skewers (soaked in water)
  • 20 cherry tomatoes
  • 30 garlic stuffed green olives

Instructions

  1. In a medium-size bowl, combine olive oil, lime juice, garlic, mint, oregano and sea salt and set aside.
  2. Cut the lamb leg steak into cubes and add to the bowl with the marinade. Combine until the lamb is well coated. 
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 2 - 4 hours.
  4. Set oven to broil (425 degrees).
  5. Layer the lamb, tomatoes and olives onto the skewers, alternating all three ingredients on each skewer. 
  6. Place skewers on a broiler pan and bake for 10-12 minutes, until the lamb is medium-rare.
