  • For extra tenderness, you can marinate the lamb overnight in the refrigerator.
  • If you prefer a stronger mint flavor, you can add more fresh mint leaves to the marinade.

  • Leftover lamb skewers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • To reheat, place the skewers on a baking sheet and warm them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10 minutes.
