In a large bowl, combine the rosemary, mint, parsley, oregano, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon zest, red pepper flakes and olive oil. Mix to combine. Add the lamb chunks and toss until well coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat the grill to a medium high heat (about 450°).
Loosely thread the chunks of lamb onto skewers - they should touch but not be jammed together. Grill for 8-10 minutes for medium rare, turning once or twice during the cooking. Remove from heat and let the kebabs rest for 5-7 minutes before serving.
If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for an hour before skewering the meat, so that the skewers don't burn.
