Whip up a large batch of Tzatziki and get in some crisp lettuce and freshly baked pita breads, with this kebab recipe you’ll have just the feast for your friends and family. They are so easy to make and damn tasty. Marinated in a blend of spices, they can be grilled, chargrilled or cooked on the BBQ.
For the skewers:
- 500g quality lamb, trimmed and cut into 2.5cm cubes
- 6-8 skewers or sticks
- 2 red onions, peeled and quartered
- 2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into 2.5cm pieces
For the marinade:
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
- 2 tsp coriander seeds
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- 1 pinch of ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
Bash up the spices in a pestle and mortar until fine.
Add the oil to make a thick, marinade paste.
Put the lamb pieces into a bowl and cover with the marinade.
Let them sit there for half an hour to an hour.
Use skewers and spike each piece of meat alternately with red onion and peppers.
Grill for around 5 minutes, turning regularly, to give you nicely charred meat on the outside with juicy pink on the inside.
Allow to rest for a few minutes before piling them onto your pita breads, dousing with Tzatziki and adding a couple of leaves of crisp lettuce.
Share, savour, enjoy!
