Servings: 15 people
- 2 kg lamb leg steaks
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
- 2 tbsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp smoked paprika
- 1 tbsp cayenne pepper
- 2 tbsp ground cumin
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 120 ml lime juice
- 2 white onions
Combine all the dry marinade ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the lime juice and whisk well.
Cut the lamb leg steaks into quarters and add to the marinade. Stir to coat well and marinate in the fridge for half an hour.
Preheat your oven to 150 C/ 140 fan and line a tray with baking paper.
Cut your onions in half, and arrange three of the halves in the centre of the baking tray. Insert a wooden skewer into each onion, slightly towards the bottom edge of each onion.
Thread your marinaded lamb pieces on to each of the three wooden skewers, until the tower reaches about two inches from the top. Use another onion half to secure the end. Tie triple lamb skewers together with some butchers string for extra support, if desired.
Roast in the centre of the oven for 90 minutes.
Serve with your favourite toppings!
