Moroccan lamb skewers

Moroccan lamb skewers I have just discovered lamb mince, and it has a few nice advantages over lamb pieces that I hadn't considered earlier.
This recipe for Moroccan lamb skewers doesn't require any marinating (which I usually do with all my skewers / kebabs) and threading the meat onto the stick is much less time consuming than regular lamb pieces.

Moroccan lamb skewers recipe


  • 700g lamb mince
  • half a cup of cashew nuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 handfull of fresh chopped coriander
  • Kebab skewers - 6-10 of them depending how big you make them
  • Salt & pepper to season
  • Fresh yoghurt to garnish

Mix it up

Mix everything together in a bowl, except for the yoghurt. Make sure there is a good dash of salt / pepper as these can taste a little bland without good seasoning.
Mix together with your hands, or a wooden spoon. The mix should be sticky enough to hold itself together in little balls.

On the stick

Roll the mince mixture into little sausage sized shapes, and then push a wooden skewer through the middle - much easier than threading individual pieces onto the skewer right?

Place the skewers onto a plate and place in the fridge for about an hour - this helps the meat stay on the stick.


Grill, fry or barbecue the skewers until cooked through.
