    About this recipe: Soutzoukakia are Greek cumin-laced meatballs. This is a twist on the traditional Greek recipe, which is usually pan-fried. This barbecued version is absolutely delicious as well. Serve with lemon wedges and rice.

    Serves: 6 

    • 675g minced beef
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 160g raisins, chopped
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped flat leaf parsley
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 teaspoon caster sugar
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 6 skewers
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    1. Preheat barbecue for high heat.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together minced beef, onion, raisins and parsley. Season with cayenne pepper, cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, sugar, salt and pepper, and mix well. Form into 6 flat sausages around skewers. Lightly brush sausages with oil; this prevents sticking to the barbecue.
    3. Arrange skewers on hot barbecue grate. Cook for approximately 15 minutes, turning occasionally to brown evenly, until well done.
