It's getting so warm here, finally. Let's hope for good weather on Saturday too - the big day for my wedding. I'm cooking up a storm - but besides preparing all the food, I need to eat something, too.
Here's a nice little dish - quick to prepare and very very tasty, and easy to vary using different spices and herbs. It made for some nice leftovers, too.
400 g of minced lamb meat
1 red bellpepper, finely chopped
sambal oelek (chili paste - use whatever you have)
handful of finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
Mix all the ingredients except for the sesame seeds, and pat them onto wooden spits. Drizzle with sesame seeds. Barbecue, or just bake in the oven for 10 minutes. (Oven should be hot - 225 C or 450 F)
As you can see in the picture, we had these with couscous and coriander tzatziki. (Yogurt, cucumber, garlic, coriander, salt, white pepper, pinch of sugar, dash of lemon)
