How to make it

  • <u>To marinate the meat:</u>
  • Toast the coriander and cumin seeds over the heat in a dry skillet or frying pan, and grind. Mix in a bowl with the other marinade ingredients. Using disposable gloves, rub the lamb all over with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 3 hours.
  • <u>To grill the lamb:</u>
  • Before cooking, give the meat enough time to come to room temperature.
  • This cut of lamb has a relatively high fat content, and therefore needs slow cooking.
  • Season the lamb well with salt and get all your kebab ingredients lined up and ready to go.
  • <u>Barbecue:</u>
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil the grill rack.
  • A clean grill is particularly important for this recipe, as the pomegranate golden syrup can make the lamb stick.
  • Place the lamb on the grill and seal on all sides. This should take about 2-3 minutes.
  • Move to a medium heat and cook for a further 12-15 minutes, or until cooked through, turning every 3 minutes or so.
  • Remove the lamb to a warmed tray.
  • Cover and leave to rest for 3-4 minutes while you organise yourself to assemble the kebabs.
  • <u>To assemble the Souvlaki:</u>
  • Toss the cabbage, spinach and red onion with the lemon juice and season to taste.
  • Slice the lamb thinly on the diagonal, across the grain of the meat, to give strips.
  • Warm the pitta breads on the barbecue for a minute on each side until they puff up and are easy to split.
  • Don't toast them, as they will become inflexible.
  • Split the bread down one side.
  • Divide the dressed cabbage and spinach mix between the pittas and top with the tomato and chilli, and finish with the garlic sauce and the sweet chilli sauce.
