Lebanese Kofta Skewers with Tahini Yoghurt



    1. Combine all the BBQ sauce ingredients and honey in a bowl and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    2. Using your hands, separate the mixture into 8 balls.
    3. Thread each ball onto a metal or soaked wooden skewer and squash into a sausage shape. Refrigerate until needed.
    4. To make the tahini yoghurt, combine the yoghurt with the tahini paste, lemon juice, garlic and season to taste with salt. Add more lemon juice if needed.
    5. Brush oil on the koftas and grill on a hot fire or griddle pan for about 6 minutes, turning occasionally until cooked through and brown on all sides.
    6. Heat up the pita bread alongside the koftas.
    7. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle smoked paprika over the top of the tahini yoghurt and serve alongside a chilli sauce of your choice.
    8. Squeeze fresh lemon juice onto the spiced Lebanese koftas and enjoy with the tahini yoghurt, chilli and warmed pita bread.
