Method

  1. Put the potatoes in a pan and cover with water. Season, bring to the boil and cook for 8-10 minutes, until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together half the oil, the honey, garlic, rosemary, oregano, lemon zest and juice. Season, add the lamb and mix well to coat.
  3. Thread the lamb, potato, onion and peppers onto 8 wooden skewers soaked in water for 30 minutes.
  4. Set a large griddle pan with the remaining oil over a medium-high heat. In batches, cook the skewers for 6-8 minutes, turning often, until the lamb is nicely charred and done to your liking. Leave to rest.
  5. For the salad, return the griddle pan with the 1 tbsp oil to a medium heat. Cook the lettuce, cut-side down, for 2 minutes, until charred. Transfer to a bowl with the peas, lemon zest and juice. Season and mix together.
  6. Arrange the lamb skewers on a platter and garnish with the parsley. Serve with lemon slices, yogurt and the lettuce salad.
