Recipe: Tandoori Lamb Salad

Bit of a cheat recipe, but it's so quick to make, delicious, and super healthy! These "Minted Lamb Kebabs" are 2 packs (with 4 kebabs in each) for £5 in Sainsburys at the moment. Totally worth it! Using the griddle pan reminds me of when in some Indian restaurants, when you order a tikka, tandoori, or shashlik dish, and the waiters come to your table with a big sizzling griddle full off spiced meat and onions- yum! This is definitely a MAN salad!

Tandoori Lamb Salad (serves 2)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp garam masala
4 Sainsburys Minted Lamb Skewers
12 cooked small new potatoes, halved
½ white onion, sliced
¼ tsp garlic salt
140g spinach
12 cherry tomatoes

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt, pepper and sugar to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 220C. Put a griddle pan onto a high heat with the extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle the garam masala over the lamb skewers, and put onto the hot griddle pan, cooking for 2 minutes each side.
2. Place the skewers on an oven tray and put into the oven for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, put the new potatoes, sliced onion and garlic salt straight onto the hot griddle pan, and cook for 7 minutes, stirring often.
3. Whisk together all of the dressing ingredients until well combined, season to taste and set aside. Place the spinach and cherry tomatoes on two plates. Remove the lamb skewers from the oven, remove the sticks, slice, and put on top of the spinach and tomatoes.
4. Top the salads with the fried onions and new potatoes, drizzle over the dressing and serve!
