  1. Make marinade: Combine oil, lemon peel, lemon juice, garlic, mint, salt and pepper in large bowl. Set aside. Add meat, tossing to coat. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Remove meat from refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling. Heat grill. Thread 6 skewers alternately with meat, mint leaf, green onion, beginning and ending with meat. Grill over medium-hot heat 12 to 15 minutes for lamb, 12 minutes for beef, turning frequently and basting every 3 minutes with remaining marinade. Garnish with lemon wedges. Makes 6 servings. Whether you make these kebabs with lamb or beef, they're a great way to use the grill. Don't stint with the mint: Use both dried and fresh for maximum flavor.
