Ingredients
  • Marinade:
  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Mint Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Special equipment: 6 metal or wooden skewers (if wooden, soaked in water for 30 minutes)
Directions

Add the lamb to a large gallon-size resealable plastic bag.

Mix the olive oil, mint, white wine vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper together in a measuring cup.

Pour the marinade over the lamb, seal the top, and toss the lamb in the marinade, making sure it's completely coated. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.

Meanwhile, to make the mint sauce: Add the mint, basil, capers, red pepper flakes, olive oil, white wine vinegar, salt, and pepper to a food processor. Pulse until smooth. Turn off and taste for seasoning, adding more salt and pepper, if needed. Remove to a bowl and refrigerate until serving.

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. With a clean tea towel, lightly oil the grill grates.

Remove the lamb from the marinade, let excess drip off, and thread onto skewers.

Season the lamb with salt and pepper. Grill for 8 minutes total for medium-rare, turning to cook all sides. Serve on a platter drizzled with sauce.
