These lamb kebabs are fragrant and aromatic with garlic, cumin and fresh mint. This is paired with a middle eastern inspired cauliflower couscous with pan-fried cumin seeds, red onion and a scattering of flaked almonds. The recipe requires 4 wooden kebab skewers. These will need to be soaked in water for 30 minutes before baking to prevent them from catching in the oven.
