Grilled Lamb Skewers (h)

Get stuck into these delectable Greek lamb skewers at your next barbecue. They're marinated in light herbs and lemon, serve with a cool and refreshing tzatziki for a flavoursome, meaty starter or light main.

In a medium sized bowl marinade the lamb with the thyme, lemon and olive oil, season with salt and pepper and set aside.

In a food processor blend the cooked peas, parsley, lemon juice and olive oil for 30 seconds, remove and season with salt and pepper and then set aside.

In a small bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, cucumber and mint and then season with salt and pepper and then set aside.

Preheat a griddle pan. Then divide the lamb between 4 skewers and place on the griddle for 3 minutes each side. The lamb should be slightly pink in the middle.

When the lamb is cooked, divide between 4 plates and serve with the crushed peas, tzatziki, warm pitta and lemon wedges. Sprinkle with the chopped chilli and serve.
