- 1½ kg lamb leg or shoulder (fat trimmed), cut into chunks
- 100ml olive oil
- 100ml red wine
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- zest and juice 2 lemons
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- flatbread, shredded red cabbage (tossed with lemon juice), cucumber, tomato, chilli sauce and natural yogurt
Put the lamb into a large bowl or strong food bag. Add the olive oil, wine, oregano, lemon zest and juice, garlic and black pepper - don’t add salt yet. Mix together so that all the lamb is completely coated, then chill and marinate for at least a few hrs or overnight.
Lift the chunks of lamb out of the marinade and thread onto 10 metal skewers, or wooden ones that have been soaked. Freeze (see freezing tips, below), or heat a grill, barbecue or griddle pan if you want to eat them straight away.
Season the meat with salt, then cook the skewers for 10-12 mins, turning, until cooked to your liking. Serve tucked into warm flatbreads with salad and drizzle with chilli sauce and yogurt.
