1.Shish kebab recipe preparation
Day before serving: Trim any fat and gristle from lamb. Place in large, deep bowl. Make shish kebab marinade: Combine all marinade ingredients; mix well. Pour over lamb, tossing to coat evenly. Refrigerate, tightly covered, overnight.
Next day: On each of 16 wooden hibachi sticks, thread 3 lamb cubes alternately with 2 bacon pieces (see note). Arrange on rack in broiler pan. Brush with leftover marinade. Broil, 4 inches from heat, 20-25 minutes, turning several times until lamb is cooked to your taste.
Serve Shish Kebabs hot, on white rice. Makes 16 servings.
Note: Lamb and bacon cook better if they are not packed tightly together on skewers.
