Tender, flavorful cuts of meat work best for these easy, tasty kebabs. Try using leg of lamb or beef steak fillets.

Serve Moroccan kebabs as an entrée, as part of a multi-course meal, or as a sandwich filler in crusty Moroccan bread or pita-like batbout. Tomato and Roasted Pepper Salad is a popular accompaniment.

Serves four to six as a main course. Well suited for entertaining or special occasions.

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin

Thanks a million!, Member minmorocco

My maid went home for the Eid and she usually makes the charmoula for our eid kabobs! I went online to find a recipe and knew EXACTLY where to look and sure enough, here it was. Thanks Christine! This is just what I needed. The charmoula looks great, I can't wait to eat some lamb!
