Spicy kofta kebabs

spicy kofta kebabs

Serves 4

  • For the kebabs

  • 400 g quality lean British lamb mince

  • 1 small bunch fresh thyme, leaves picked

  • zest of 1 lemon

  • sea salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • Optional spices

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander

  • ½ teaspoon ground chilli

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin

  • To serve

  • 4 tortilla wraps

  • 1 round lettuce, leaves washed and spun dry

  • olive oil, optional

  • lemon juice, optional

  • 4 heaped tablespoons natural yoghurt

  • 1 fresh red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped, optional

Place all the kebab ingredients and the optional spices in a big bowl and mix well.



Divide the mixture into four equal pieces and get yourself 4 soaked skewers. With damp hands, shape the meat around and along each skewer, pressing little indents in the meat as you go, for a nice texture.



Grill the kebabs for 8-10 minutes until golden and cooked through, then push to the cool side of the barbecue and warm your tortillas next to them for 30 seconds.



Transfer the tortillas to plates and top each with a little lettuce. Drizzle with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice, if liked. Slip the meat off the skewers and break it up. Spoon over a blob of yoghurt and drizzle over any resting juices. Sprinkle over some chopped chilli for an extra kick and tuck in. Delicious!

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
