Method

  1. Mix the lemon juice, olive oil and garlic in a mixing bowl. Pour half into a jug and set aside for later. Add the lamb to the bowl, stir to coat, then thread onto 8 small skewers If using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 30 mins before use. Pour over any excess marinade and let stand for 10 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, mix all salad ingredients together, except the mint, and pour over the reserved lemon juice and oil mix.
  3. Heat a griddle pan. Cook the lamb for 8 mins, turning every couple of mins, until cooked through and slightly charred. Mix the mint through the salad and serve immediately with the kebabs.

This was so simple to prepare and very tasty. We aren't a huge fan of olives here, so instead we did a salad with Lettuce, Cucumber, tomato and Feta Cheese. The feta went perfectly with the Lamb. Our Lamb was very tender, I liked it, but partner said he would prefer a stronger sauce with it.

if you use rosemary sprigs as the skewers it works just as well plus you get a lovely flavour imparting into the meat

looking forward to trying this, will find a substitute for olives - not a fave with ours. Mind picture - at the table under the green raffia parasol, a jug of wine and good bread mmmmm!
