Serves 4
15mins to prepare, 30mins to marinade and 10mins to cook
295 calories / serving


350g boneless lamb leg meat
12 firm cherry tomatoes
1 medium red onion, peeled and cut into 12 wedges
1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into roughly 3cm chunks
lemon wedges, for squeezing
green salad, to serve
2tsp ground cumin
2tsp ground coriander
1/2tsp ground ginger
¼tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp dried crushed chillies
finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
1tsp fine sea salt
40g sultanas
110g lemon and coriander couscous

To make the marinade, put the cumin, coriander, ginger, cinnamon, crushed chillies and lemon zest in a large non-metallic bowl. Stir in the lemon juice, salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper. Trim the lamb of as much fat as possible and cut into roughly 3cm chunks. Add the lamb to the marinade and toss until well coated. Cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.

Remove the lamb from the fridge and thread onto eight long, metal skewers (they need to be around 25cm long), alternating with the tomatoes, onion and pepper pieces. Season with a little more salt and pepper.

Preheat the grill to its hottest setting. Place the skewers on a rack over a grill pan lined with foil. Cook the lamb for 4-6 minutes, turning once or twice until lightly charred but pink in the middle.

While the lamb is cooking, prepare the couscous. Put the sultanas and apricots in a large bowl and stir in 175ml of just boiled water. Immediately add the couscous and stir well. Leave to stand for 5 minutes then fluff up with a fork to separate the grains. Serve the lamb and couscous with a fresh green salad and lemon wedges for squeezing.

  1. This looks so good, I love it. Thinking to cook long grain rice with this recipe and have some turmeric in it. And I like the kebab's marinate very much too, guess I can use this recipe for most grill meat.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! Enjoy Middle Eastern and Lebanese Recipes! :)
