Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 800g boneless lamb shoulder
  • 2 red peppers
  • 2 red onions
  • 250g low fat yoghurt
  • ¾ of a cucumber
  • Handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 4 pita or flat breads
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 iceberg lettuce
  • 1 lime

Preparation time: 40 minutes

Method:

  1. Heat your barbecue to a high heat.
  2. Chop the lamb shoulder into 2cm chunks, slice the onion into wedges and the red peppers into squares.
  3. Evenly place the lamb, red pepper and onion onto the skewers.
  4. In a pestle and mortar, add a small bunch of chopped mint, 2 chopped garlic cloves, a lug of olive oil, the zest & juice of half a lime and a pinch of seasoning. Grind together until the mixture is combined and marinate the skewers. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  5. While the skewers are in the fridge, start on the tzatziki. Begin by grating the cucumber (leave some for the flat breads). Add 250g of yogurt to a bowl with 2 cloves of crushed garlic, the grated cucumber, 5-6 finely chopped mint leaves and seasoning. Mix together with a spoon until combined.
  6. Remove the skewers from the fridge and place on the hot barbecue. Give them 3-4 minutes on each side, around 15 minutes in total.
  7. Remove the lamb, pepper and onion from the skewers and you are ready to assemble. Start by placing some chopped lettuce, tomato and cucumber into the flat breads. Add a good helping of lamb, onion and pepper followed by a healthy dollop of tzatziki.
  8. Get stuck in! If you are looking for some heat add a bit of chilli sauce.
