4 x 200g lamb backstraps, cut into 3cm pieces
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp ground cumin
Sea salt and cracked black pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 red onions, cut into wedges
1 Tbsp lemon juice
Flat-leaf parsley leaves and mint leaves

1 Place the cauliflower in a food processor and process until mixture resembles small grains. Set aside.

3 Thread the lamb on to skewers and brush with 1 Tbsp olive oil.

Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes. Add the cauliflower and cook for a further 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
