1 leg of lamb; boned, cubed*
5 baby lamb sweetbreads, opt.*
4 baby lamb kidneys, opt. *
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lemon's juice
1/4 cup wine
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1 bay leaf; crushed
2 garlic cloves; crushed
1 freshly ground black pepper
8 bay leaves; cut
1 firm tomatoes (opt); 1/4'd
1 green peppers (opt); cubed
1 salt
1 oregano and lemon quarters


*Note: Lamb meat(s) should be cut into cubes the size of walnuts.

Place the lamb, sweetbreads, and kidney cubes in a large non-aluminum bowl. Make a marinade of the oil, lemon juice, wine, herbs, garlic, and pepper and pour over the meat. Marinate in the refrigerator, preferably overnight, or for at least 3 hours. Thread the meat on long skewers alternating the bay leaves with the tomatoes and peppers, if desired. Grill over hot coals or broil 6 inches from the heat, brushing with the remaining marinade and turning frequently. Season with salt and pepper, then remove the meat from the skewers to a warm platter and crush oregano over the top. Garnish with lemon quarters and serve hot.
