Middle Eastern Lamb Lollipops Ingredients

 

  • Around 8 lamb cutlets. I used Welsh Lamb from my local market in Cardiff

  • 1 tsp Urfa Biber / Urfa Pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sumac

middle eastern spiced welsh lamb ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients into a bowl, minus the lamb and stir.
  2. Add the mixture to the lamb and use your hands to make sure everything is coated.
  3. Leave to marinade for at least 30 minutes, preferably longer.
  4. You don’t want the delicate herbs and spiced to burn on the direct heat of a pan so I grilled them for around 10 minutes in my airfryer on a high heat.
  5. It depends on the thickness but make sure they are still a little pink inside and not dried out.
