Tasty Facts

Sheep kidneys, especially if it is an offal from an adult animal, can have a rather strong smell. It is enough to soak the kidneys of a young lamb for a short time, and the old one has to be soaked for up to a day. Milk (soaking in it) and aromatic spices will help save cooking time.

Due to the problem with the smell, even when frying, lamb kidneys are recommended to be scalded for at least a couple of minutes in water.

If this is the first time you’ve seen kidneys in a store, know that they are a great base for a hearty second course (fried with onions and served with sauce), grilled or simply put into a salad.
