Souvlaki – the kebab search goes on!

Souvlaki is basically a posh lamb kebab. The trick (as I discovered) is to use very lean lamb. Because the lamb is cooked very quickly, any fat present doesn’t have time to cook out, leaving you with a chewier kebab than you may like. It’s not a bad combo, not sure if I’d try it like this again though.



  • 350g lean lamb pieces
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 pitta breads
