BBQ Harissa Lamb Kebabs

Perfect for a long summer evening outdoors with friends. The heat of the Harissa mix combines perfectly with succulent lamb to deliver a taste sensation that your guests will love.


  • 150g Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp Harissa
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 500g minced lamb
  • 1 tbsp Aleppo pepper
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ginger paste
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch mint chopped
  • Naan or flatbread to serve
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, to serve


  1. Soak 12 large bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes (unless using metal skewers).
  2. Whisk the yoghurt with 1 tbsp harissa mix, 2 of the garlic cloves, lemon juice and 1 tsp salt. Cover and refrigerate for later.
  3. Next, combine the lamb, Aleppo pepper, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, ginger, onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tbsp harissa spice mix and the mint in a bowl. Add 1 tsp salt and knead the mixture together.
  4. Working with wet hands, divide the meat into twelve portions and shape into a sausage. Carefully thread onto the bamboo or metal skewers.
  5. Fire up your BBQ and when ready, cook the kebabs for 8-10 minutes, turning regularly.
  6. If you don’t have a BBQ, don’t worry, simply place in an oven preheated to 220°c for 12-15 minutes.
  7. Once cooked, let the kebabs rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Serve on naan or flatbread and spoon the harissa yoghurt on top.

Goat meat requires a slow cook for a very juicy and soft result that pair perfectly well with rice and peas.

If goat meat isn't accessible, then lamb would work just as well for this recipe.
