1/3 cup pine nuts
1 1/2 pounds boneless lamb, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
8 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons dried thyme
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 onion, chopped
1 head cauliflower, (about 1 1/4 pounds), cut into small florets
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup canned crushed tomatoes in thick puree or 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads, (optional)
3/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 3/4 cups canned low sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup dried currants
1 1/2 cup couscous
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped




In a small frying pan, toast the pine nuts over moderately low heat, stirring frequently, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Light the grill or heat the broiler. In a glass dish or stainless-steel pan, combine the lamb, 6 tablespoons of the oil, the thyme, and 3 tablespoons of the lemon juice.

In a large frying pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil over moderate heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the cauliflower, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is golden, about 10 minutes. Add the saffron, if using, 1 1/4 teaspoons of the salt, 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper, the tomatoes, broth, and currants. Simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the couscous and parsley. Bring to a simmer. Cover, remove from the heat, and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir in the pine nuts and the remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice.

Put the lamb on skewers. Sprinkle the kabobs with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Grill or broil the kabobs, turning and basting with the marinade, until the lamb is cooked to your taste, 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare. Serve the skewers on the couscous.


Wine Recommendation: Cabernet sauvignons from Friuli and Collio are often dismissed because they’re light-bodied; however, their herbaceous flavors make them perfect for these kabobs.

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
