North African Orange & Lamb Kebabs

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/north_african_orange_lamb_kebabs.html

From EatingWell:  July/August 1997, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

This spicy yogurt marinade tenderizes lamb beautifully--but it's not a long process, as with some marinades. Twenty minutes does the trick. Here, the lamb is paired with orange sections, which sear and turn slightly bitter, a bracing complement to the meat.

4 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Combine cilantro, parsley, garlic, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper in a food processor; process until the herbs are finely chopped. Add yogurt and lemon juice; process until smooth. Scrape into a medium bowl, add lamb and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  3. Thread lamb and orange slices alternately onto 8 skewers. Discard marinade.
  4. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the kebabs, turning occasionally, until cooked to desired doneness, 7 to 10 minutes for medium-rare. Serve immediately.
