Lamb koftas

Jamie Oliver Lamb kofta

This is an absolutely gorgeous recipe that I found on the Jamie Oliver (click here for original recipe) website. It is filling, full of fresh flavours and really healthy all at the same time. I would never have thought of sprinkling the chopped nuts over the freshly cooked koftas but the result was incredible – giving the meat a complimentary sweetness and crunch. I served it up with some pickled cabbage and some mixed bean salad. It was clean plates all round.


1/4 of a red cabbage
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp caster sugar
50gĀ chopped mixed nuts
1 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 iceberg lettuce
400g minced lamb
Sweet chilli sauce
4 small tortillas
Fat-free natural yoghurt, to serve
MIxed bean salad, to serve (I used a pre-made salad from the supermarket)


Finely slice the cabbage and put it in a bowl along with the white wine vinegar, sugar and a pinch of sea salt. Mix well then set aside. To make the lamb koftas, seasonĀ the lamb mince with salt and pepper then use your hands to form into kofta or sausage shapes around wooden bbq skewers. Place the skewers under a hot grill and cook for 20 minutes, turning occasionally until the lamb is cooked through and golden brown. While the lamb is cooking, add the fennel seeds to a pestle and mortar and crush to a coarse sand consistency. Once crushed, turn out onto a large plate or board and mix in the chopped nuts.

Once the lamb is cooked, remove from the grill, brush all over with the sweet chilli sauce then roll each kofta in the chopped nuts/fennel mixture.

Serve the koftas with the tortillas, some of the pickled cabbage (drain and squeeze out any excess liquid before serving), mixed bean salad, some crisp iceberg lettuce and a drizzle of natural yoghurt.

    Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i
    was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things
    out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not
    sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Thank you

    naturally like your web site however you have to check the
    spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them
    are rife with spelling issues and I to find
    it very bothersome to tell the reality however I will certainly come back again.


    Usually I don’t learn article on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very pressured me to check out
    and do it! Your writing style has been amazed me.
    Thank you, very nice post.


    Every weekend i used to pay a visit this site, because i want
    enjoyment, since this this site conations in fact nice funny
    stuff too.


    I think that what you posted was very logical. But, what about this?
    suppose you were to write a killer headline? I ain’t
    saying your information isn’t solid, but suppose you added a headline that grabbed people’s attention? I
    mean Lamb koftas | The Glasgow Scullery is a little plain. You could
    glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post titles to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts
    a little bit more interesting.


    I read this post fully about the comparison of
    newest and previous technologies, it’s remarkable article.


    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself
    or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any
    methods to help protect against content from being
    stolen? I’d really appreciate it.
