  1. Soak the wooden skewers in water.
  2. Mix the ingredients for the marinade together in a bowl. Add the thinly sliced lamb and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Thread the slices of lamb onto the skewers but spread the pieces out so they'll cook evenly.
  4. Heat the griddle pan or bbq to a high heat. Place the skewers on the pan or rack and cook for 2 minutes. Turn over and cook for a further 2 minutes. Transfer to a warm platter and serve.


You can add dried chilli flakes instead of chilli sauce.
