A delicious dish which can be cooked under the grill or on a BBQ

Serve with a side of Sweet Chilli Slaw and a fresh green salad scattered with feta cheese

Serves : 4        Prep/Cooking Time : 30 mins + marinating

Tip : If you prefer pork, you can use the same marinade as this is a good basic recipe suitable for all meats.


Marinade the Lamb

In a large plastic watertight bowl with lid, mix all the ingredients for the marinade together

Now add the cubed lamb to the marinade. Ensure the lid is on correctly.

Tip the container up and down, do a little dance!! - this will make sure that the lamb is well coated

Leave in the fridge for a miniumum of 2 hours, better still overnight so the meat has chance to soak up all the delicious flavours of the marinade.

Assembly Line

Remove the marinated meat from the fridge then allow it to come to room temperature

Using long BBQ skewers, push one piece of meat onto the skewer, followed by a piece of onion, then pepper, alternating the colours, repeat and continue to fill the skewer until around 2 inches is left free (so you can pick it up)

Grill or griddle on the BBQ until crispy and golden brown

Serve with a Sweet Chilli Slaw or fresh green salad with a few chunks of feta cheese
