This is such a simple. delicious and easy meal to make. Ask your butcher to cut up the leg of lamb for you. I do that and it works brilliantly. I just select the leg I want and then they take it to the back for me and chop it up – free of charge, and they do it really well! Makes life a LOT easier!
800g deboned leg of lamb cut into 2.5cm cubes
200g haloumi cheese, cut into 2.5cm pieces
1-2 red onions, cut into wedges
50ml chopped oreganum
5ml chopped garlic
5ml grated lemon rind
50ml lemon juice
50ml olive oil
salt and pepper
Soaked wooden skewers
Pita breads for serving
Hummus for serving
– Combine the lamb and cheese and onion with the marinade ingredients and marinate for 3-4 hours or overnight.
– Thread the meat, cheese and onions on to the skewers and cook on a griddle pan or over a braai until the meat is cooked to your liking. Baste frequently with the remaining marinade.
– Serve with warm pita breads and hummus for dipping.
