Easter Leftovers? Try this Paleo Passover Lamb Recipe

I went to visit my favorite butcher La Boucherie Fine Meats at the St Lawrence Market in Toronto this weekend. I was pleased to see how busy they were with the amount of customers that flocked to the St. Lawrence Market on the weekend. It could also be that this past week National Geographic recently ranked St Lawrence Market as the WORLDS best food market. This landmark has been serving the city of Toronto fine meats, foods, cheeses for over 200 years.

My good friend Dina at La Boucherie was telling me that they the lamb skewers were a popular hit this week, with Passover and Greek Easter all landing around this time of the year. So I thought I’d give the lamb a shot and try my hand at a paleo lamb recipe.

This is a great meal for a hungry family also! Lamb is very filling with one serving of lamb containing 331 total calories and it’s high in cholesterol also. This stir fry isn’t considered a “leaner” stir fry if you’re looking to put on size this would be a good meal to make as lamb is loaded with vitamins, minerals and 28g of protein. 4 oz of lamb has roughly 27g of fat which is higher than your recommended daily fat intake.

 

Here’s the ingredients
What you’ll need from your fridge
6-8 lamb skewers
Olive Oil
Lemon
1 Green Pepper
1/2 Red Onion
4 Asparagus

What you’ll need from your cupboard
2 Tupperware to marinate lamb and veggies overnight
1 Wok
1 Frying Pan
Pepper
Jamie Oliver Lemon Salt (great for seasoning)
What I love about this recipe is it only takes a few minutes to prepare the marinate and only a few minutes to make.

For the Lamb skewers
Empty lamb skewers into Tupperware
Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil
Dash of Jamie Oliver Lemon Seasoning Salt
Dash of Pepper
Squeeze half lemon onto lamb
Grate some lemon zest
Close the Tupperware and let marinate overnight


For the veggies
Chop the red onion
Green Peppers
Asparagus
Mix with Olive oil, lemon juice and peppers close and shake Tupperware
Let it sit overnight
After you let the veggies and lamb marinate overnight, cook the lamb in a separate pan on medium to high heat and cover. It takes the lamb some time to cook so I like to have it in a wok because it’s spacious.
In a separate pan place the mixed veggies on a low to medium heat. The olive oil it marinated in from the night before will be enough so it mixes in with the veggies and doesn’t stick to the pan.
Once the lamb is cooked thoroughly roughly 8-10 minutes mix your veggies in the wok and let cook for another few minutes. Splash with some lemon juice to keep it juicy and enjoy!
