Using a pestle and mortar, combine the thyme, oregano, garlic, salt, cumin, smoked paprika, chilli powder, peppercorns and saffron. Crush until well combined and then place in a large bowl with the bay leaves. Add the lamb to the bowl and mix well, thoroughly coating the meat with the marinade. Cover with clingfilm and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least one hour.

    Once marinated, thread the lamb on to six long skewers. Cook over a BBQ or under the grill for 8-12 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure they cook evenly.

Chef's tip

«If you have time, prepare this recipe a day in advance and leave the meat to marinate overnight. This combination of flavours also works well with chicken breast or pork fillet.»
