Place lamb cubes in glass dish. Cover with Minty Yogurt Marinade, turning gently to coat. Refrigerate for 4 to 12 hours, turning meat occasionally.

Thread lamb cubes alternately with artichokes halves, onion and pepper chunks on small bamboo skewers (soaked in water for 1 hour to prevent them from burning) or on large metal skewers.

Grill on barbecue or under oven broiler 7, 8 minutes until preferred doneness. Turn and brush with marinade often during cooking.

Serve 1 to 2 kebabs per person and garnish with fresh mint. Serve with couscous and plain yogurt.

Minty Yogurt Marinade:

In bowl, melt mint jelly in microwave oven for 30 seconds at high heat. Stir in remaining ingredients. You can also melt mint jelly in a small saucepan on low heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix well. Refrigerate.
