Cooking Instructions:
Add the lamb, rosemary, oregano, garlic and lemon juice & zest to a mixing bowl. Mix in the olive oil and leave to marinade for at least 2 hours (overnight is best).
Remove the lamb, but don't throw the marinade away.
Place a piece of lamb on a water-soaked skewer followed by a piece of pepper then a piece of onion. Repeat this until the skewer is full. With a bit of juggling you should be able to get 12 completed skewers.
Brush with some of the excess marinade and cook on a barbecue or under a hot grill until the meat is cooked through.
Serve with a lettuce, tomato and feta salad and tzatziki.
