Method

Combine the marinade ingredients, coat the lamb well, thread onto wooden skewers and cover and chill for at least 2 hours.

For the pancakes – fry the cauliflower and anchovies over a medium heat for 2-3 mins until soft, stir regularly. Put in a bowl and add all the other pancake ingredients, stir, but don’t worry about cauliflower lumpy bits -they’re supposed to be there.

Drop spoonfuls of the mix into a fry pan with hot oil, cook 3 mins each side.

After the lamb has marinated, place on med heat on a BBQ, baste with the butter and lemon, turn when golden. If the weather is less than perfect however, the grill is a great alternative.
