Moroccan Style Lamb Kebabs 

Perfect for grilling or barbecuing if the sun comes out!
The weather has been typically British over the last few weeks hasn't it?

Record highs, record lows, wind, rain - it seems there's nothing Mother Nature hasn't decided to throw at Swindon in May.

But if you're still hoping for a proper summer and want to spice up your dinner time then these Moroccan style Lamb kebabs are the perfect antidote for all this poor weather!

Moroccan Style
Scotch Lamb Kebabs

Serves: 2
Preparation Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins


1. Mix together the yoghurt and Harissa paste in a bowl. Add the lamb, coating the cubes thoroughly.

2. Thread the lamb alternately with the peppers and onion onto skewers.

3. Cook under a preheated hot grill or over the coals for 10-12 minutes or until the lamb is cooked to your liking, turning the kebabs occasionally and brushing with any leftover marinade.


Scotch Lamb, lean and tender and succulently coated with yoghurt and spices perfect for grilling or barbecuing. Serve on a bed of couscous or in warmed pitta bread with crisp lettuce and cooling yoghurt, mint and cucumber.

Hints and Tips: Cube the lamb from gigot or shoulder steaks or a boned half leg of lamb.

Not into spices? Then stir some mint sauce into the yoghurt with a chopped green chilli, or some mango chutney and finely chopped onion.

Prepare ahead! Cover the lamb and yoghurt marinade at the end of stage 1 and keep refrigerated overnight or until required.

Enjoy the kebabs with simply cooked couscous, rice or bulgur wheat: just add your own twist of ingredients: chopped spring onions, cucumber, sultanas or chopped dried apricots.

Harissa is a fiery blend of Middle Eastern spices conveniently bought as a paste. Delicious brushed over meat when grilling or stirred into casseroles.

If using wooden skewers, soak them first in water to help prevent them from charring during grilling.
