Using a sharp knife cut the lamb shoulder into 2cm cubes and place in a mixing bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and massage into the lamb pieces until evenly coated.

Bamboo Skewers
Marinated Lamb
¼ Cup Canola Oil
Coriander Leaves


Soak your bamboo skewers in water to prevent them burning.

Preheat your BBQ to high heat.

Thread half a dozen pieces of lamb onto each skewer, making sure to space them out so they cook more evenly.

Brush the lamb skewers with a little canola oil, then grill for 2 minutes on each side to caramelise.  Remove from the heat and rest.

Finish off your lamb kebabs with a good squeeze of lemon and some torn coriander leaves. Accompany with flatbreads, yoghurt and a seasonal salad.
