Notes about this recipe

    This tastes great but I found that it needed something to bind it together as it wanted to fall apart on the barbeque. I may try with a higher fat content minced lamb next time, or just add an egg.

    I've been making these for years. Usually I make it with ground lamb by combining everything except the lamb in a food processor then mixing in the ground meat by pulsing it a half dozen times. My handful of pistachios is more like a double handful, and into the mix I also add a roughly chopped garlic clove and a sliced shallot as well as a little olive oil. I've found that even when I eyeball the spices it tastes great. If you can possibly cook them on a grill do it.

    The whole family really enjoyed these kebabs. I used ground turkey and cooked them under the broiler, which worked great. They would lend themselves well to any yogurt, hummus, or tahini topping. I even made fresh flour tortillas to go with them, making the dish extra delicious.

    I loved this recipe. Could also make them with beef. I made some hummous to go with it and it was superb. Great summer BBQ food.
