Lamb Kabobs with Avocado Salsa
These kabobs are great for barbecues, or even as a quick family meal idea.
1/2 pound minced lamb (chop in a food processor)
3 tablespoons fresh bread crumbs (make in a food processor or blender or crumble by hand)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
1 large egg beaten
Salt and ground black pepper
1 small avocado
Juice of half a lime
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
3 tomatoes, chopped - don't need to skin them or chop them finely
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander or cilantro
4 pitas for accompaniment
- Combine all the ingredients for the kabobs and divide mixture into 4 parts. Shape into sausage shapes around the 4 skewers. If the kabobs are not required immediately chill the skewers of meat until required.
- Grill or barbecue for about 15 to 20 minutes, turning until brown and cooked through.
- Meanwhile combine all the ingredients for the salsa, season well.
- Heat the pitas and split length-ways. Fill with salsa and the grilled kabobs.
Makes 4 servings.
Note: If you are using wooden skewers soak them in water for at least an hour before hand and this will stop them burning when you grill or barbecue them.
