  1. To make the meatballs, combine the lamb mince with the garlic, lemon zest, mint, honey, some sunflower oil and a little seasoning. Shape into 16 walnut-sized balls and put in the fridge to chill.
  2. Thread the onion chunks, meatballs and halloumi cubes onto 8 wooden skewers ones (soak them in water for 30 minutes first, to stop them burning).
  3. Mix together the olive oil and lemon juice and use the rosemary sprig to brush the marinade over the kebabs. Cook on the grill of a preheated barbecue for 4-5 mins on each side until cooked through and lightly charred.
