Lamb Kebabs



300g minced lamb
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 tsp fresh mint, finely chopped
4 tsp lemon thyme leave, finely chopped
3 tsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 tsp chili, finely chopped
1 Blue cheese
Salt & pepper
Non-virgin olive oil for cooking (or vegetable oil)


Put all the ingredients except the lemon thyme and olive oil in a large bowl, then mix thoroughly. Using your hands, roll the mixture into small balls the diameter of a £2 coin and place on a plate

Put a frying pan on a high heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil. Add the meatballs a handful at a time, and fry quickly, trying not to make the olive oil smoke. They are small so they could cook in 2-3 mins each and can be a little pink inside if you like

Put the chopped lemon thyme leaves on a plate and roll then cooked meatballs over them until they have all stuck

Skewer the meatballs onto a wooden skewer, with a chunk of Blue cheese between each one
