Lamb kebabs with pickled carrot and mint yogurt

Full of flavour and quick-to-make, these lamb skewers are the answer when you’re craving bold flavours. Paired with pickled carrots and a minted yogurt, this Greek kebab recipe is fresh yet satisfying. We'd recommend using diced lamb, as it's the best cut of meat for grilling over high heat.

  1. Place the lamb, chopped rosemary, half the chopped garlic and 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a bowl, season well with salt and pepper and mix well with your hands. Push the lamb onto skewers, cover and set aside. Heat a griddle pan on a high heat with 1 tbsp olive oil and, when very hot, cook the courgettes for 1-2 mins on each side or until there are clear black griddle lines. Remove from the pan.
  2. Place the carrot and onion in a bowl, add vinegar, sugar and a little salt and pepper, and toss together. Place the yogurt, mint (if using) and remaining garlic in another bowl, stir to combine and season to taste.
  3. Reheat the griddle pan on a high heat, add the lamb skewers to the pan and cook for 8 mins, turning halfway through. Heat another large frying pan on a high heat and warm each tortilla wrap for 30 secs on each side until they start to brown.
  4. Fill each tortilla with the lamb pieces, courgette, pickled carrot, mint yogurt and spinach leaves and roll up and serve.

Tip: Marinating the lamb for 2-3 hrs before cooking will intensify the flavours. You can even marinate it in the fridge overnight.
