You could do these on a BBQ. We chose not to because our patio turns into Lord of The Flies: The Bugs are Back every time the thing is lit.
Instead, I grilled (or broiled if you’re American) them and ate my dinner in blissful, fly-free, peace.
We’ve a freezer full of New Zealand lamb racks (don’t ask – wholesalers and their ‘specials’) so I was getting a bit sick of lamb – first world problems, right?! – and these kebabs were a nice change.
Also you really cannot beat a bit of meat on a stick. It truly brings out the cavewoman in me.
I may or may not have been grunting while I devoured these. No-one will ever know (except Hubs and he’s seen me lose my dignity so often that he’s immune to it).
Spiced Lamb Skewers (makes 4)
- 8 oz lamb, cut into large chunks
- 1 tsp ras-el-hanout
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- Combine the spices then rub firmly into the meat, making sure each chunk is well coated. Let sit for 10 minutes.
- Add the chunks to 4 skewers, piercing through the thickest part of the meat and spacing them about 4 cms apart (I averaged about 3 pieces per skewer).
- Grill/broil for about 5 minutes on each side
