Chunks of lean leg of lamb marinate in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, and rosemary, picking up tons of flavour despite the short soaking time. They’re skewered with fun accompaniments—colourful mini peppers (which require no prep) and canned artichoke hearts. The artichokes are delicate, so take care when flipping the kebabs to keep them from tearing or falling off.
