Preheat the grill to high. Remove the grid from the grill pan and line the
pan with foil. Divide the lamb mixture in half and make four equal portions
from each half. Grease the palms and fingers of your hands and carefully
moult each portion on to a skewer, patting and stretching it gently into a

kebabs over and grill for a further 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and carefully slide the meat off the skewers with a
knife. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with onion rings, cucumber
slices and lemon wedges.
