3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 1/2 lemons
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon dried mint
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 1/2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes

1 Japanese eggplant, halved lengthwise and sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 10-ounce package frozen quartered artichoke hearts, thawed
