Simple Moroccan salad
- Cut the lamb steaks into 1cm cubes. Place all marinade ingredients, except salt and pepper, in a bowl. Add cubed meat and toss well. Leave in the fridge to marinate for several hours or preferably overnight, to tenderise and flavour meat.
- Heat a barbecue, or gas or electric grill. Thread cubes of meat on to skewers and season with salt and pepper. Barbecue or grill for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until browned all over. Serve with ooroccan salad.
Tip: If you're using bamboo skewers, remember to soak them for several hours (preferably overnight) in cold water before use. This will prevent the bamboo catching fire and burning under the grill.
