Inspired by boltonmin from Bolton Foods

These are the best BBQ Spicy Lamb Spiedini you’ve ever tasted.


  • 8-10 LM Meat Lamb Spiedini
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Chili Flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Whole Cumin Seeds
  • 2 Tablespoon Whole Fennel Seed
  • 2 Teaspoon Granulated Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Each Kosher Salt, Fresh Cracked Pepper, Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon
  • 2 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1⁄4 Cup Fresh Cilantro, Chopped For Garnish (Optional*)


In a mortar and pestle or spice grinder, combine red chili flakes, cumin, fennel and garlic powder and grind to a coarse spice grain, add in salt, pepper and sugar, lemon juice and vegetable oil and mix. Allow your Lamb Spiedini to come to room temperature and place on a lined baking sheet, and coat and massage thoroughly with 3/4th of your spice, juice and oil mixture; allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Preheat your BBQ on high heat and allow it to come to temperature before turning to low and placing Spicy Cumin Lamb Spiedini on a hot grill. Allow to cook for 3-4 minutes before brushing with remaining spice mixture and turning over for remaining 5 minutes or until nicely seared. Remove from the grill, plate and serve garnished with chopped cilantro and fresh yogurt for dipping! Enjoy.
