Shish Kebab



.Not Suitable for freezing




minutes cooking time


  • 500g Mince Lamb
  • 2 tbs Corriander
  • 2 Onions very finely chopped
  • 1 tbs Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Chilli Paste
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Ginger Paste
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Oil
You will also need wooden or metal skewers. If using wooden make sure you soak them whilst the mix is chilling to prevent them from burning.


  1. Mix all of the ingredients (except the oil) together in a bowl, cover and chill for 2 hours
  2. Divide the mixture and shape around the skewers into sausage shapes. Ensure the meat is even all the way round
  3. If you are not cooking straight away, leave in fridge until you need them
  4. If cooking on a BBQ brush the Shish with oil and cook, turning regularly. You can also grill or griddle them.
  5. Serve with mint yoghurt, couscous or anything else that takes your fancy!
I leave some of the chilli out when feeding the children and sometimes increase it for us - it is a matter of taste but this recipe gives you a good base.

Leek, Parsnip and Chestnut Soup

I’m a real soup lover and none are complete without the addition of leeks. However, rather than just using leeks as a background flavour, I really want to bring them to life, and pair them with ingredients they really love.
