“While I was looking for a recipe for a traditional Kebab ( I couldn't find one or didn't look hard enough) I thought of one myself. Using the herbs and spices that are my fave...oh and a lovely Kebab sword that we got while on holiday some years ago.You could serve this in a warm pita with green salad or like me as a side meat with mash spuds, or any way you like really.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Warm your cumin and coriander powder in a small pan, till you smell the aroma (don't let it burn).
  2. Mix all the ingredients to make a marinade, pour over lamb and make sure all the meat is coated well.
  3. Leave overnight (or as long as possible) in the fridge.
  4. Thread onto skewer, making sure you keep as much of the marinade on the meat as possible, (pack it tightly making sure the marinade is between the layers).
  5. Wrap in tin foil and place over a roasting tin (you could check to see if your skewer spans the tin and fits in the oven before hand).
  6. Place in a preheated oven (180°C) for 40 minutes.
  7. Take out and remove the foil, put back in for 5-10 minutes on full heat.
  8. Our you could cook it on your bar-be, just make sure its cooked through.
