LAMB SOUVLAKIA. These were the star of our bbq Easter spread. Yiayia was so impressed she was happy to get on camera and congratulate me for making them. Here is how I made them! Makes approximately 25 souvlakia using large skewers. 3 boneless lamb shoulders, trimmed of fat and cut into chunks approx 2cm thick. If you want to make them extra special, use lamb backstrap. In a small bowl combine. 1 tsp garlic powder. 1 tsp onion powder. 1 tsp sweet paprika. 1 Tbsp smoked paprika. 1 Tbsp oregano. Generous amount of salt and pepper. 1/2 cup olive oil. Combine all the herbs and spices with the oil and pour entirely over the lamb, massaging it very well through letting it marinate over night. Allow your skewers to soak overnight aswell. When ready to assemble, cut 3-4 capsicums and 1-2 onions (depending on their size) into 2cm squares and skewer alternating lamb, capsicum, lamb and onion pieces onto the sticks. If you have leftover veggies make a veggie souvlaki, they’re beautiful on the bbq. Once on the fire, ensure your brush (marinade) generously with a combination of lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper. I call this the Greek Elixir of Life because of its fantastic health priorities (see my post from September 1st, 2019 to read more about it). When the souvlakia have come off the bbq give them one last generous splash of the lemon oregano oil. The more the better 🤤.
