Grilled Sicillian Lamb

IMG_0697

Looking for something different to put on the dinner table, my version of this lamb recipe is to die for.  Other recipes I have seen take the lamb and cook it in a pan sliced.  My recipe you cook it whole on the grill and I add feta and capers to give it a great mediterranean taste.  This is one of those recipes that don’t have exact measurements.  You just take the ingredients and put it together to your liking.

Ingredients
 
Boneless Leg Of Lamb
1 box of rice pilaf
1 medium onion sliced
1 red bell pepper sliced
mushrooms sliced
1 zucchini sliced
2 cloves garlic minced
oregano
red pepper flakes
salt, pepper
pitted olives
feta cheese
capers
lemon juice
olive oil
 
Directions:
 
Take the leg of lamb and if necessary butterfly it so it is about 2 inches thick.  Season with salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes and lemon juice.  Fire up the grill and cook lamb until cooked through.  Cook rice pilaf in seperate pot as per directions.  In large skillet heat with olive oil and garlic.  When oil is hot add mushrooms, zucchini, red pepper, capers and onion.   Cook vegetables until soft.  Remove lamb from grill and cut into 1/2 inch strips.  Now it’s time to put this masterpiece together.  On your plate spread the rice first.  Then on top of the rice place the vegetables and meat.  Now on top of that put some olives and feta cheese.  You now have a great meal that is different and awesome.  Cheers !!!
