Barbecued Lamb Tikka With Coleslaw is basically a recipe with marinated lamb skewers served in pitta, with delicious coleslaw on the side.
If you love a BBQ but are looking for fresh inspiration, then this could be the recipe for you. At first glance you might think this recipe takes forever to make, but a chunk of the time has to be put aside for the Marinade and chill time: 2 hours in fact. So if you can plan around this, maybe leave it to marinade in the fridge overnight, then that’s half the battle!
