Moroccan Kefta Kebab

This recipe for Moroccan Kefta Kebab is inspired by a North African vacation I took about 10 years ago. These delicious ground meat skewers are packed full of flavors like cumin, paprika, minced onion, coriander, mint, and parsley. Serve these with salad and pita bread.

To make these skewers, start by mixing all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and cover. As the mixture chills in the refrigerator, soak bamboo skewers in water. To make the kebabs, take small amounts of the meat mixture and shape them into cylinders or sausage shapes. Mold the meat onto the bamboo skewers. Grill the kefta kebabs and serve immediately, or wrap in foil to keep warm.

To make my version of Moroccan Kefta Kebab, you will need the following ingredients:
