Method

  1. Blend all the marinade ingredients until smooth, and season with 1 tsp salt and some black pepper. Add the lamb, mix well, cover and put in the fridge to marinate for as long as possible; overnight is best.

  2. When ready to cook, soak 8 wooden skewers in water for 10 mins and heat a barbecue to medium-high, or heat your grill and line a baking tray with foil. Thread the lamb onto the skewers, about 4 pieces on each. Place on oiled racks of the barbecue and cook for 12-14 mins, turning often, or until charred in places and cooked right through. If you’re grilling the skewers, cook for 10-12 mins.

Made these as per the recipe and it was lovely. I struggled to get the lamb, should have gone to Waitrose 1st! I marinated over night and when I threaded on to the skewers I added peppers. Everyone loved it :)
