In a bowl, combine salt, garlic, olive oil, cumin, paprika and lemon juice. Cut the meat uniformly sized 1 to 2 inch cubes for quick and even cooking.
Then add the meat into marinade sauce and mix them all. Leave for marinating at least 1 hour, preferably one night in the fridge.
Drain the meat and discard the marinade sauce, do not use it again.
Put the meat and vegetables on skewers. If you are using wooden skewers, leave them in water for 30 minutes, to prevent them catching fire over the grill.
Cook Shish Kebabs on the grill, electric grill or you can bake them in the oven at 400F (200C) till all sides are golden brown and tender.
