The best marinated lamb kebabs

marinated lamb kebabs

Serves 6-8

  • 500 g quality lamb, trimmed and cut into 2.5cm cubes

  • 6-8 skewers or sticks fresh rosemary, lower leaves removed, tips kept on

  • 2 red onions, peeled and quartered

  • 2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into 2.5cm pieces

  • For the marinade

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

  • 2 cloves

  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds

  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds

  • sea salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • olive oil

First bash up all the spices in a pestle and mortar until fine, then mix with the oil to make a thick marinade paste. Put the lamb pieces into a bowl and cover with the marinade. Let them sit there for half an hour to an hour. Then, using the rosemary sticks or skewers, spike each piece of meat alternately with red onion and peppers. Grill for around 5 minutes, turning regularly, to give you nicely charred meat on the outside with juicy pink on the inside. Allow to rest for a few minutes – that is, if you can stop yourself eating them straight away!

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.
