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.

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


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


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


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


Leave to rest for a minute before serving
