800g lamb back strap, chopped into 3cm cubes
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 large cucumber, grated, squeezed to drain away excess liquid
300g plain Greek-style yoghurt
Sea-salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to season
6 mini pita pockets
1 red onion, thinly sliced
Seeds of 1 pomegranate
2 tsp ground sumac
2 Tbsp dried Greek oregano
3 cloves garlic, finely grated
Juice of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
3 Tbsp olive oil

To make marinade, combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
Add lamb to marinade and toss to coat. Set aside at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine oil, cucumber and yoghurt in a bowl, then season. Set aside.
Preheat barbecue flat plate to high. Thread lamb onto 6 metal or pre-soaked bamboo skewers. Cook kebabs for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally.
To assemble dish, remove lamb from 1 skewer and put in 1 pita pocket. Top with a dollop of the cucumber yoghurt, then a little of the red onion. Sprinkle over a few of the pomegranate seeds and a little of the sumac. Repeat with remaining lamb, pita, yoghurt mixture, onion, seeds and sumac. Serve.
