DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the Lamb into 1 1/2 inch dice, removing any excess fat.
  • Cut each of the onions vertically into 6 wedges.
  • Grate the zest of one of the lemons into a large non-metallic bowl or dish.
  • Juice both lemons, and pour the juice into the dish with the zest.
  • Squash or crush the garlic cloves, adding to dish along with sliced chilli and a good pinch of black pepper.
  • Bruise the rosemary, by lightly crushing and bending it in your hands. This releases the flavour of the rosemary. Add to dish along with the olive oil.
  • Add the lamb and onions to the dish and toss everything around with your hands to give everything a good coating.
  • Leave for at least 24 hours, but 48 hours is even better.
  • Soak 6 wooden skewers in cold water for at least an hour, before threading the lamb and onions onto them.
  • Barbecue for 15-20 minutes until cooked, brushing occasionally with reserved marinade.
  • Serve with pitta and tzatziki.
