  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped oregano

  • Pepper (optional)
  1. Place meat in a bowl, lightly season and set aside.

  3. Marinate lamb with olive mixture and place in fridge for 1 hour.
  4. To make the skewers, thread the lamb on to soaked skewers making sure they are even shapes; this will ensure they cook evenly.
