Lamb and halloumi skewers with grilled potatoes

Method

For the lamb skewers

  • In a bowl, mix the ingredients for the marinade with a spoon or with a hand whisk.
  • Cut the leg of lamb into 2 cm cubes and add it into the bowl with the marinade.
  • Mix with the spoon, until the meat is completely covered with the marinade, and set it aside for 20 minutes to marinate.
  • Cut the halloumi into 2 cm cubes.
  • Thread the lamb and halloumi pieces alternately onto wooden skewers.
  • Put the skewers on the grilling surface of the barbecue, over medium heat, and grease them with olive oil on both sides during grilling.
  • Grill the skewers for about 6-8 minutes on each side.

For the grilled potatoes

  • Add the potatoes into a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap.
  • Microwave the bowl for 8-10 minutes at 800 Watt, until the potatoes are slightly tender.
  • Cut the onion into slices. 
  • Cut the potatoes into 2-3 cm pieces and add them into a bowl along with the onion.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and add it to the bowl along with the olive oil.
  • Season with salt and pepper, and mix the ingredients of the bowl with a serving spoon.
  • Cut a 25 cm aluminum foil piece and transfer the potatoes on it.
  • Fold its edges to create a pouch. Make sure to not wrap the aluminum foil very tightly in order to allow the steam to escape.
  • Transfer the pouch to the barbecue and grill for 15-20 minutes, flipping it over every 10 minutes. 
  • Unwrap the aluminum foil and check if the potatoes are tender.
  • Mix with a serving spoon and spread the cheeses over the potatoes.
  • Leave the aluminum foil unwrapped and grill them for another 5 minutes, until the cheeses melt.
  • Remove the potatoes from the barbecue.

To serve

  • Serve the lamb skewers with the potatoes and the cooked pitas, sprinkling with a little rosemary.

For the potatoes: preheat the oven to 180οC (350ο F) set to fan and bake for 30 minutes, keeping the pouch closed. Add the cheeses and bake with the pouch open for another 10 minutes.
