Main dishes



For 1.5 pounds lamb:
2 small onion heads
2 scallion (spring onion) heads
2 medium-sized tomatoes
1 lemon
1 tbs. vinegar
1 tbs. olive oil

Dice 1st onion. Clean lamb, cut into small pieces, place into bowl, add salt, pepper, diced onion and vinegar or one tsp. of lemon juice. Make sure ingredients are well applied. Cover bowl, move to a cold place and allow marinating for 2.5 hours. Slice 2nd onion. Add pieces of lamb interspersed with onion slices. One should cook Shashlik above hot (no flame) coals on a grill or brazier. In case of no available grill one can use a frying pan. Cook 15-20 minutes, spinning skewer to evenly cook Shashlik. Once done, remove from skewer, place onto plate, garnish with sliced red or green peppers, tomatoes, scallions and slices of lemon. This method will work for pork Shashlik as well.
