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!

Ingredients: 

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

Marinade Ingredients:

50ml chopped oreganum

5ml chopped garlic

5ml grated lemon rind

50ml lemon juice

50ml olive oil

salt and pepper

For serving:

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.
