Preparation: 5 mins 
Cooking: 20 mins

Ingredients to make 8 skewers

  • vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 500g good quality lamb, minced
  • bunch of fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon shichimi togarashi
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 8 skewers, soaked in water for 20 minutes
  • Yoghurt and mint dip
  • 5 tablespoons natural yoghurt
  • large bunch of mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • zest of ½ a lime
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to season
  • Heat the oil on a frying pan on a medium heat and add the diced onion. Slowly cook the onion, allowing it to sweat, and then fry until translucent (do not brown). Remove from the heat and let it cool.
  • In a large bowl mix together the minced lamb, parsley, shichimi togarashi and onion. Season with salt and pepper.
  • With dampened hands take a handful of meat and using a firm hand form a rectangular shape. Push a skewer through the meat.
  • Place under a grill on a high heat for 10 to 20 minutes (or until cooked to your liking). Place a cup of water on the base of the grill to stop the meat drying out.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the dip together in a bowl and serve on the side.
