Lamb Meatballs with chopped salad and minted yogurt - Cooking Instructions


1.    Whisk the oil, vinegar, lemon rind and garlic together in a large non-metallic bowl. Add in the rest of the salad ingredients and gently toss with the dressing.

2.    Mix all the meatball ingredients in a bowl. Do not over work the mixture or the meatballs will be tough. Shape about 24 meatballs. Thread 4 meatballs on to each skewer and lightly brush with oil.

3.    Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over a medium-high heat.

4.    Combine the yogurt and lemon juice in a small bowl. Fold in the mint and season with the salt

5.    Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the meatballs over direct medium-high heat for 4 to 6 minutes, with the lid closed as much as possible but turning occasionally, until they have browned but are still slightly pink in the centre. During the last 30 seconds of barbecuing time, heat the naan over direct heat.

6.    Cut the naan in half or into pieces large enough to hold 4 meatballs. Top with a generous spoonful of sauce and some salad.
