Spice Low-Carb Lamb Skewers

This lamb skewer recipe is a favourite at home. I like to serve these with a Greek salad including feta and olives together with a simple yoghurt and cucumber dip. And, if we ever get barbeque weather these are great to cook on the grill outside!

You could also serve with cauliflower rice and / or flatbread made from Fat Head Pizza dough

Ingredients

Makes 4

You will need kebab skewers. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 mins first to prevent them burning.

450g good quality lamb mince (fresh or frozen)
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 bunch of fresh coriander leaves (washed and chopped)
2 cloves of garlic crushed (or equivalent garlic paste)
2 red chillies deseeded and chopped (or equivalent chilli paste)
½ tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp garam masala
2 tsp fresh grated ginger (or equivalent ginger paste)
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp ground black pepper

Method

  1. Mix lemon juice with mince in a large bowl
  2. Blend the remaining ingredients (except the fresh coriander) to a paste in a food processor. If using garlic, chilli and ginger paste you can mix with a spoon.
  3. Stir the paste plus the fresh coriander into the mince and divide the mixture into four
  4. With wet hands form the mixture into sausage shapes around skewers, pressing gently all round until a firm shape is formed
  5. Brush each kebab with a little olive oil and grill under a medium heat for 5 minutes on each side or until browned and cooked through. These can also be cooked on BBQ if the sun shines!

Enjoy!
