Number of Servings: 2


    400g lean lamb cut into 10 cubes
    1 tsp olive oil
    2 tsp red wine vinegar
    2 tsp fresh thyme leaves or 1 tsp dried
    1 crushed garlic clove
    100 g couscous
    120ml hot chicken stock
    1 lemon
    1 ripe tomato, finely chopped
    4cm piece cucumber, finely diced
    1 small carrot, finely diced
    2 spring onions, chopped
    50g feta, crumbled
    large handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped


1. Preheat the grill to medium. Place the lamb cubes in a bowl, add the oil, vinegar, thyme and garlic and toss until evenly coated. Set aside to marinate for 5 minutes or so.

2. Meanwhile, place the couscous in a large heatproof bowl and pour over the hot stock and the juice of half the lemon. Cut the remaining lemon half into two wedges.

3. Thread the lamb onto 2 metal skewers. Grill for 8 10 minutes turning a couple of times until nicely browned but still a little pink in the centre.

4. Once the couscous has absorbed the liquid, break it up with a fork then stir through the tomato, cucumber, carrot, spring onions, feta and mint.

5. Pile the couscous on to two plates and serve each with a lamb skewer and lemon wedge for squeezing over.
