750g cauliflower, stem removed and chopped
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.

2 Place the lamb, allspice, cumin, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine.

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

4 Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.

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

5 Remove from pan and keep warm. Increase heat to high, add the skewers and cook for 2 minutes each side for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking.
