Tap For Ingredients


  1. Place all the kebab ingredients and the optional spices in a big bowl and mix well.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
