Tasty Tuesday: Lamb Skewers

I cannot wait for the day that we have a grill and can make dinners on it, but for now in apartment living we've found a great oven recipe for skewers. We can pretend it was made on the grill right? 

From EMeals
4tsp + 1tsp olive oil, divided
1tsp balsamic vinegar
1tsp chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 small clove garlic, crushed
1/2tsp salt, ground pepper to taste
2tsp lemon juice
1/2 lb lamb, cut into 2'' cubes
4 shallots, quartered
4 plum tomatoes halved
Wooden skewers, soaked in water

3/4 c Israeli couscous
1 shallot, minced
1 T chopped thyme
1 T olive oil
juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Cook couscous according to package directions, add shallot while cooking. Toss with thyme, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Combine 4tsp olive oil, balsamic vinegar, rosemary, garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Pour marinade over lamb and marinade for 2-4hrs.

Heat oven to 350F. Place shallots on baking sheet, Drizzle with 1tsp olive oil and back for 15mins. Place lamb, shallots, tomatoes on soaked skewers. Drizzle with reserved marinade. Heat broiler to high. Broil 2-4mins per side.

This Greek fare is one of our favorites, plus the chef said it was easy to create (I just set the table). I loved the juiciness of the lamb combined with the fresh taste of the lemon and couscous along with the crunch of the shallot.
