Ingredients

  • Juice of 1 lemon, plus lemon wedges to garnish
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 425g lean lamb fillet
  • 2 red onions, cut into large dice
  • 100g mixed salad leaves, including British spinach
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • ¾ cucumber, peeled, halved and finely sliced
  • 200g natural Greek yogurt
  • 4 medium pittas or flatbreads

Method

  1. Set aside ½ tbsp lemon juice and put the rest in a bowl. Add the garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper and 2 tbsp olive oil. Cut the lamb into 2.5cm dice and mix into the marinade. Cover and chill in the fridge until needed.
  2. Preheat a griddle pan over a high heat. Season the lamb with salt and thread onto 8 skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak in water for 20 minutes before threading to prevent burning), alternating cubes of meat with onion squares. Cook in the griddle pan for 4-6 minutes, turning often, until medium rare.
  3. Place the salad leaves, spring onions and cucumber in a large bowl and toss together with the set aside lemon juice and remaining olive oil. Place the yogurt into a separate bowl. Whisk in 50ml cold water and season to taste. Toast the pittas.
  4. Serve 2 kebabs each, with the dressed salad alongside. Season and stuff the kebabs into the pittas, drizzle over the yogurt dressing and garnish with lemon wedges.
