Burhan's Marinated Lamb Kebabs with Sumac-Onion Salad
Aleppo pepper is a Turkish crushed chile, which is more robust and slightly fruitier that regular red chile flakes. If you can't find Aleppo pepper, substitute 1/4 teaspoon of paprika and a tiny pinch of cayenne.
Grenache, with its soft red-cherry flavors, balances the tangy notes in this marinade and in the sumac salad. The variety does especially well along Spain's Mediterranean coast, where it's called Garnacha.
