Time To Break Out The Grill

_

_
With temps reaching into the high 90's today it's time to break out the grill and do some barbecuing. Something fast, easy and preferably somewhat healthy.
_
Spice Rubbed Lamb Pops
_
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 pound lamb (top round) trimmed of fat and cut into 1/2-inch by 2 1/2-inch strips
12 skewers, if wooden soak in water for 10 minutes
_
Preheat the grill or a grill pan.
_
In a small bowl combine the cumin, coriander, cinnamon, pepper and salt. In a large bowl sprinkle the spice mixture over the lamb strips and toss to coat.
_
Thread 1 piece of lamb onto each skewer and grill over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes, turning once.

Yum, Looks good. Is it really 90 there? It was 50's and rainy here today. Obama is in Michigan today. Didn't get to see him though. Don't eat it all save some for your guest readers.
