Lamb Kebabs in Pomegranate Marinade BBQ Recipe

The pomegranate marinade we’ve used here is an absolute winner and a change from the everyday. This recipe is three steps to heaven. Marinate your lamb pieces in a mixture of pomegranate molasses, garlic, mint, cardamom and lemon. Then skewer and grill. Add some evenly cut veggies if you like to make this a meal in itself.

Lamb Kebabs in Pomegranate Marinade BBQ Recipe


  • 1 kilo lamb, diced small
  • 2 medium spanish onions, quartered and separated
  • Skewers (if bamboo, soak before using)


  • 1/3 cup pomegranate molasses
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice



Combine all ingredients in saucepan. Over medium heat bring to a simmer, whisking. Do NOT boil or the molasses will burn and taste hideous. Simmer for 5 minutes, remove from heat and let cool.


Mix meat and marinade, cover and refrigerate for approx 3 hours, or overnight. Thread lamb onto skewers, alternating with quartered onion slices.
