Step 1

1. Cut the lamb into ½ inch cubes and place into a bowl.

3. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil to the lamb and mix well ensuring that the lamb is evenly coated. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

4. Thread the meat onto the soaked skewers and make sure the meat is tightly packed leaving an inch at the bottom of the skewer.

Step 5

5. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat until very hot. Drizzle the other 1 tablespoon of oil over the skewers before placing them carefully onto the griddle pan. Cook for 1 minute on each side to ensure they have a nice colour on the outside. Transfer to a plate and let the skewers rest for a couple of minutes.
