  • 4 long,woody rosemary stems
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 lb lamb, cut into cubes



  • Remove the leaves from the bottom 3/4 of the rosemary stems.
  • Place the rosemary stems in a glass of water.
  • Place the rosemary leaves in the bowl of a small food processor.
  • Add evoo, garlic, pepper, Himalayan pink salt, lemon juice and zest and dijon to the rosemary.
  • Pulse the marinade until the garlic and rosemary are chopped.
  • Pour the marinade into a zip top bag and add lamb cubes.
  • Marinate lamb in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight.


  • Immerse the rosemary skewers in water for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat a charcoal, gas or stovetop grill.
  • Thread lamb cubes onto rosemary skewers.
  • Grill skewers over direct heat until they reach your prefered doneness, 145F for medium rare or up to 160F for medium.


  • If you want gorgeous fresh rosemary to top your cooked skewers, you will need extra rosemary sprigs for after cooking. Pierce fresh rosemary into the tops of the cooked skewers.
  • If your rosemary sprigs are not woody enough for grilling, use wooden skewers, but soak them for at least a couple hours.
  • If you don't have a small food processor, finely chop the garlic and rosemary before combining with the rest of the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Whisk vigorously to emulsify ingredients.
