  1. Heat the grill to high. Place the lamb on a baking tray, rub all over with the harissa and season. Grill for 6-8 mins, turning halfway through cooking. When the lamb is cooked to your liking, remove to a plate and allow to rest for a couple of mins.

  2. Meanwhile, warm the flatbreads, then spread each with 1 tbsp houmous. Mix the carrot and parsley. Slice the lamb and scatter down the middle of each flatbread. Top with carrot, drizzle over any resting juices, roll up and eat.

Great - we preferred thin flat bread and added tzaki

Fantastic recipe, so quick and easy makes a great week night dinner. I swapped the parsley for coriander, added a squeeze of lime juice and mixed additional harissa into the humus! Chapatis work really well too instead of flatbreads.

This was amazing and have eaten it many times - however I use a carrot salad recipe that uses mint, parsley and cumin! Find it tricky to keep warm during serving too, but tastes so good anyway it doesn't matter.
