2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, chopped

4 sprigs rosemary, leaves stripped

1 1/2 pounds boneless lamb steak or skirt steak

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley

3/4 cup pitted green Spanish olives, coarsely chopped

3 lemons, halved

4 banana or Cubanelle peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded

2 bunches scallions


  1. Preheat a grill to high. Combine the olive oil, garlic and rosemary in a shallow dish. Add the lamb, turn to coat and season with salt and pepper. Mix the parsley and olives in a bowl.
  2. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon into a bowl. Put the peppers skin-side down on the grill; cook until blistered, brushing with the lemon juice and seasoning with salt, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter.
  3. Meanwhile, grill the remaining 2 lemons cut-side down until charred, about 5 minutes; set aside. Grill the scallions, turning, until tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and coarsely chop, then add to the olive mixture and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Grill the lamb until marked, about 4 minutes per side for medium rare. (A thermometer inserted into the thickest part should register 140 degrees F.) Transfer to a cutting board and let rest, 5 minutes. Slice against the grain, add to the platter and top with the scallion-olive mixture. Squeeze the grilled lemons on top.
