This recipe was taken from my TV show Peter Sidwell's Kitchen broadcast every Saturday morning 9am on Facebook, Youtube, Instragam and Twitter.

Serves 4


750g British lamb leg cut into cubes

2 Garlic cloves

1 tbsp cumin seeds

1 tbsp coriander seeds

1 tbsp sesame seeds

Here’s how

To make the marinade, pour the cumin and coriander seeds in to a dry frying pan and toast on a medium heat for 3-4 minutes.

When the spices are toasted and your kitchen is full of the spiced aroma pour them into a pestle and mortar and grind to a powder.

Add the spices to the mixing bowl with the sesame seeds, Lemon zest, salt, pepper, olive oil and chopped rosemary.

Stir the mixture together.

Cut the lamb into 3cm cubes and place in a large mixing bowl with the marinade and stir together.

Place the lamb I the fridge for 1 hour to marinate.

Cut the nectarines into wedges and three onto wooden kebab stick, alternating with the diced lamb.

You can cook the lamb on the BBQ for grill for 8-10 minutes until cooked.

Mean while to make the dip to serve with the lamb, place all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.

Taste the dip and season according to your taste buds..

When the lamb is cooked served with warmed up lamb breads, salad leaves and the dip.
