Spiced lamb koftas with mint & tomato salad recipe

 Spiced lamb koftas with mint & tomato salad

Use a North African spice mix to flavour these skewered meat kebabs and serve with wraps, tomato salad and yogurt

Prep: 30 mins
Cook: 15 mins
Makes 4


500g pack lean lamb mince
2 small or 1 large preserved lemon, flesh and seeds removed and skin finely chopped
10 pitted green olives, finely chopped
small bunch parsley, chopped
1½ tbsp ras-el-hanout
1 tbsp vegetable oil
yogurt, salad and wraps, to serve (optional)
4 large tomatoes, chopped
½ red onion, very finely sliced
small bunch mint, leaves picked
juice ½ lemon
good pinch of sugar


In a large bowl, combine the lamb mince, preserved lemon, olives, parsley, ras el hanout and some seasoning – don’t be too generous with the salt, as the preserved lemon and olives are both quite salty. Divide the mixture into 4 and shape each piece around a long skewer. Chill for 30 mins.

Combine the ingredients for the salad with some seasoning and set aside. Heat the grill to high. Rub the oil over the koftas and wrap a little foil around the bottom of each skewer if you’re using wooden ones. Place on a baking tray and grill for about 7 mins each side until nicely browned, checking the meat is cooked through to the centre. Serve with the tomato salad, a dollop of yogurt and some couscous or in wraps, if you like.
