Barbecue Lamb Brochettes in a Thai Pesto

  Lamb leg 1 1⁄2 Pound, trimmed and cut into 0.75 inch pieces
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), mashed
  Kosher salt 2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Basil 2 Cup (32 tbs), picked
  Cilantro 1 Cup (16 tbs), picked
  Mint 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), picked
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Ginger 1 Tablespoon, minced
  Macadamia nuts 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), toasted, chopped
  Olive oil 6 Tablespoon
  Lime juice 1 Tablespoon
  Fish sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Tabasco sauce 1 Teaspoon

Place the lamb in a shallow casserole dish. Toss with the garlic, lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Thread each skewer with 3-4 pieces of lamb. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight.

Combine the basil, cilantro, mint, garlic, ginger, macadamia nuts and olive oil in the work bowl of a food processor. Puree until smooth. Add the lime juice, fish sauce and Tabasco. Pulse to combine. Set aside for one hour at room temperature for the flavors to develop.

Light the grill. Once hot, place the skewers over high heat and cook for 2-3 minutes, turning to cook all sides evenly. Transfer to a platter and place a small amount of Thai pesto on top.

Enjoy with a glass of Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon.
