Method

  1. Measure all the ingredients into a jar, screw on the lid and shake everything together really well.

  2. Toss 4 lean lamb leg steaks in the juice of 1 lemon and set aside in a non-metallic dish for 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle each side of the steaks with 1⁄2-1 tsp of the spice mix, rub it into the meat and marinate for 2-4 hours. If you’re pushed for time and can’t leave it this long the spice mix will still work but will be a little fiercer. To cook, smear the meat with 2-3 tbsp olive oil and barbecue for 3-4 minutes on each side.

This was really nice when we tried it and we have also used the spice mixture on chicken which is also very nice. Would def recommend it.
