Persian Lamb Kebab

Persian Kebabs are well known for being the most delicious kebabs and that’s all down to the marinade. You can use veal, beef , or chicken and this is the recipe for one of two marinades we use. The other marinade uses mast or natural yoghurt rather than zafaran. Both are divine.

Serves 2

Ingredients for the marinade :

  • 500 gr’s Lamb
  • 1/2 teaspoon  of zafaran
  • 2 Onions
  • 1 desert spoon of Lime juice
  • salt and pepper


  1. Wash, trim and cut  the lamb into large cubes
  2. Place the meat into a bowl
  3. Roughly chop the onion into quarters
  4. Pour on the zafaran and mix it well
  5. Add salt and pepper, lime juice
  6. Leave in the fridge to marinate for at least an hour before grilling
  7. Put the meat onto skewers and grill or BBQ until brown

Serve with zafaran rice and salad or Salad Shirazi, mast or natural yoghurt and sabzi khordan
