Lamb heart skewers

Our easy lamb heart skewer recipe is a great introduction to the underused offal cut and can be served in a variety of ways. We'd recommend cooking them on a barbecue and serving in a wrap with some salads and rice, but it's a very versatile cut and can be marinated or spiced with whatever flavours you like.

Method

1

Once you've prepared your lamb hearts, you should be left with a total of 4 larger steaks and 2 thinner steaks. Slice the thinner steaks lengthways and the thicker steaks into roughly 2cm cubes

2

Place the steaks into a bowl with the garlic, lemon zest and juice, rosemary and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight

3

Thread the heart pieces onto skewers. Light a barbecue or place a griddle pan over a high heat. You need to cook them over a very high heat so that you get a nice charring and caramelisation quickly whilst not overcooking the heart, so be patient and allow the barbecue or pan to become smoking hot

4

Place the skewers over the heat and cook for 4–5 minutes, turning regularly to achieve even charring all over

5

Leave to rest for a minute before serving
