Lamb kidneys! Woo Hoo!
But, I want to barbeque them. I know how to sautee,roast, stew, etc., but I was wanting to do a brochette, or something else over coals. Give me your most complicated recipes, but I am in a not so well provisioned area, so give me your less complicates ones, as well. The cottage has only basic equipment, and (by my standards) a minimal pantry. I was thinking about a red wine, lemon, fennel seed marinade. Thoughts?
I've only ever fried kidneys so am not sure how they are going to go on the BBQ. I think great care's going to be needed not to overcook them.
When I have cooked them, I've never marinaded, preferring the straight taste of kidney. My usual dish is as a starter - on toast, with a mustard/cream sauce.
That said, fennel (frond or seed) goes extremely well with lamb's liver so I guess will work well with the kidney.
indian style lamb kidneys with ginger garlic chili paste and salt. they cook very fast. i dont use anything else. your minimal pantry may be a limitation. i finish mine with a little butter and then eat them on toast. very delish !
My barbeque plans fell apart when the barbeque did. I ended up broiling them devilishly: Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, a couple of dashes of Tobasco, salt, pepper, dried rosemary. One makes due... Not terribly interesting,I admit, but good enough with some toated baguette, a Greek salad, and watching the cormorants, et al., over the lake. The leftovers were delicious with my eggs the next morning.
