Marinated Lamb Souvlaki with Tzatziki

A marinade is of the utmost importance when making a delicious souvlaki. Spice it generously with cumin, paprika, oregano, and thyme. All these flavors, together with lemon and olive oil get absorbed by the lamb meat. Pair this with a refreshing tzatziki. And serve it with pita. If that's something you don't have in your kitchen, substitute with a tortilla.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
