Lamb Souvlaki

I decided to make lamb kebabs for dinner. I had a Turkish takeaway a little while ago and I loved the lamb kebabs so decided to have a go at home. These were delicious. I served it with a Turkish aubergine and tomato salad, pickled veg and rice. 

Lamb Souvlaki (from My Greek Dish)
(Serves 4-5)

1kg lamb leg or shoulder, cut into chunks
5-6 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
juice of 1 lemon
2 red onions, roughly chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp smoked sweet paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper

Make the marinade for the lamb. Whisk the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, herbs and spices and pepper together in a large bowl. Add the meat and the chopped onions and stir to coat. Cover the bowl with cling film, and leave to marinade for at least 4 hours or overnight in the fridge.

Thread the chunks of lamb onto skewers. Season with salt.

Heat a grill, barbecue or griddle pan and cook the lamb for about 10-15 mins, until cooked to your liking.
