Turkish Lamb Shish Kebab

A mouth-watering, classic kebab that’s so easy to make, you literally can’t go wrong. Marinade the meat overnight for best results.


  • 1kg boneless leg of lamb, cut into even 1 inch chunks
  • 30 cherry tomatoes


  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme
  • picked 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper


  1. Combine all the ingredients for the marinade and mix with the lamb. Leave for at least 2 to 3 hours (overnight is ideal).
  2. Fire up your BBQ or put your grill on its highest setting.
  3. Thread the lamb on to BBQ skewers, popping a cherry tomato on after every 2 or 3 pieces of lamb.
  4. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes depending on how well done you like them.
  5. Serve with flatbread and a salad.
