  • 1/4 cup packed mint leaves

  • 1/4 cup packed flat-leaf parsley leaves

  • 1/4 cup snipped chives

  • 2 tablespoons very finely chopped shallot

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • Salt

  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked sweet paprika

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 1/2 pounds leg of lamb, cut into 1-inch pieces


  1. In a food processor, combine the mint, parsley and chives with the shallot, lemon juice, sherry vinegar, crushed red pepper and a pinch of salt and process until finely chopped. Add the olive oil and process the salsa verde until smooth.
  2. Transfer half of the salsa verde to a small bowl. Transfer the remaining salsa verde to another bowl and stir in the paprika and cumin. Add the lamb pieces and turn to coat thoroughly. Thread the lamb onto 8 long skewers and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
  3. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Grill the lamb skewers over high heat, turning them occasionally, until the lamb is lightly charred in spots, about 6 minutes for medium meat. Serve the lamb skewers with the salsa verde.

Make Ahead

The salsa verde can be covered and refrigerated overnight.

Suggested Pairing

Serve with a rich Grenache.
