    Here's a traditional Iranian way to barbecue marinated lamb and tomatoes. If you can't find sumac, try lemon pepper as a substitute.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 1/2 cup (125ml) extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/4 cup (65ml) fresh lime juice
    • 2 large onions, grated
    • 1 clove garlic, crushed
    • 1/2 teaspoon saffron
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 900g boneless lamb, cut into large cubes
    • 4 tomatoes
    • 1 tablespoon sumac

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:8hours marinating  ›  Ready in:8hours25min 

    1. Combine olive oil, lime juice, onions, garlic, saffron, salt and pepper in a large, zip top food storage bag. Place lamb pieces in bag; seal and shake to combine. Marinate lamb, refrigerated, overnight or up to 24 hours.
    2. Preheat barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
    3. Thread marinated lamb on long thin metal skewers. Thread whole tomatoes on another skewer. Brush lamb and tomatoes with marinade; discard remaining marinade.
    4. Grill kebabs until lamb is cooked to your liking and tomatoes are hot and grill marked, about 5 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with sumac if desired before serving.

    This was very easy and came out great! I marinated the lamb overnight. I also used little grape tomatoes and alternated lamb and tomato on the skewer. Served with rice and a salad. My boyfriend loved it and I will definitely make it again.  -  05 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Absolutely Delicous! My whole family loved this recipe. This was the best lamb kabob I ever had. One thing I did different was, while the kabob was on the grill I brushed some melted butter on both sides of the kabob. That helped the kabob to not get burned so easily and it made the kabob juicy. This recipe is a keeper. This kabob was better than a Persian restaurant.  -  23 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    The marinade is delicious with grilled chicken breasts.  -  10 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
