Homemade Griddled Lamb Skewers

These skewers are oh so easy to make and oh so versatile. They can be served on their own as a starter or as part of a main meal with rice, couscous or flat breads!

Inspiration for this meal came about after having a delightfully indulgent Turkish meal in Angel after a day out with some friends. I’m not an authority on Turkish food, but I absolutely love it. I pretty much used ingredients I had at home and bought a few items to serve with the dish. If you do try this, let me know how it goes… enjoy!


  • 500g Lamb leg – sliced or diced into equal sized pieces.
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder/ 1 clove fresh garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ginger powder/ fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon lamb seasoning
  • Lamb stock cube to taste
  • salt & black pepper to taste
  • Fresh chilli to garnish
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 6 x wooden skewers – soaked in water (or metal skewers)


  1. In a large bowl, season the lamb with the garlic, ginger, chilli powder, lamb seasoning and stock cube. Add salt and black pepper to taste and the oil. Mix well, making sure the meat is well covered, then cover and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour. skwlmb-2016_001
  2. Once ready to make your meal, skewer the lamb pieces using the wooden skewers.Heat a griddle pan for a few minutes till hot then position your skewers on the pan. Lower the heat to  a medium heat. I tend to batch cook depending on the size of the griddle pan.skwlmb-2016_002
  3. Cook each side for 5 minutes – avoid tampering with your meat so as to get the lamb cooked through.
  4. Serve up!

Serving tip: I served mine with some fresh avocado salad, store bought hummus (this was a mid-week meal people!, I had to cheat : )), wholemeal flat bread (again, store bought) and freshly made chilli dip.
