Spiced Lamb Kebab with Couscous

cook 30 mins
  • 300 g (10 oz) diced lamb
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped mint
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 large green pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tomatoes, each cut into 6 wedges
  • steamed couscous
  • garlic sauce or tzatziki
  • Place the lamb in a bowl with the garlic, spices, mint and 1 tablespoon of the oil, then rub really well to coat the meat in the spices. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
  • Thread the lamb onto 4 long metal skewers, alternating with the onion, green pepper and tomato wedges. Arrange on the rack of a foil-lined grill tray, drizzle with the remaining oil and cook under a hot grill for 7–10 minutes, turning occasionally, until everything is lightly charred and the lamb is cooked to your liking.
  • Serve the kebab skewers with bowls of steamed couscous, and garlic sauce or tzatziki, if desired.
