Ingredients

For the Kabob:
1/2 lb. minced lamb or chopped chicken thighs (chop in a food processor)
3 Tbsp. fresh breadcrumbs (make in a food processor or blender or grate by hand)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh coriander
1 egg beaten
salt and pepper

Salsa:
1 small avocado
juice of half a lime
1/2 tsp. chili powder
3 tomatoes, chopped - don't need to skin them or chop them finely
1/2 Tbsp. chopped fresh coriander
4 pitas

Directions:

1. Combine all the ingredients for the kabobs and divide mixture into 4. Shape into sausage shapes around the 4 skewers. If the kabobs are not required immediately chill the skewers of meat until required.

2. Grill or barbecue for about 15- 20 min., turning until brown and cooked through.

3. Meanwhile combine all the ingredients for the salsa, season well. Heat the pita and split length-ways. Fill with salsa and the grilled kabobs.

Note: If you are using wooden skewers soak them in water for at least an hour before hand and this will stop them burning when you grill or barbecue them.

* These are great for barbecues, to take in lunch boxes or even as a quick family meal idea.
