Stir 3 tbsp of olive oil into the large bowl, season, then add the lamb and turn until glistening and well coated (you can do this up to a day ahead).

Finely chop half an onion and add to the small bowl with the yogurt. Season, stir well, then chill until ready to eat (it will keep for a day in the fridge). Cut the rest of the onion into wedges and separate the layers.
