Lamb kebab skewers
Make a big batch of these delicious kebabs, then freeze for a sunny day.

1½ kg lamb leg (fat trimmed), cut into chunks

100ml olive oil

100ml red wine

2 tsp dried oregano

Zest and juice 2 lemons

2 garlic cloves, crushed

To serve:

Flatbread, shredded red cabbage (tossed with lemon juice and seasoned with salt and pepper), cucumber, tomato, chilli sauce and natural yogurt

Put the lamb into a large bowl. Add the olive oil, wine, oregano, lemon zest and juice, garlic and black pepper, no salt.

Mix together so that all the lamb is completely coated, then chill and marinate for at least a few hours or overnight for best results.

Lift the chunks of lamb out of the marinade and thread onto 10 metal skewers, or wooden ones that have been soaked.

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 minutes, turning, until cooked to your liking.

Serve tucked into warm flatbreads with salad and drizzle with chilli sauce and yogurt.
