Notes

The longer the meat is marinated, the more aromatic it will be. If possible, marinate leave to marinate for several hours in the fridge. Mix from time to time and remove from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking.

If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 20 minutes just before using them to prevent burning. If you are marinating the lamb the same day, soak them while the meat is standing in the oil and garlic.
