Lemon Grass Kebabs with Sweet Chilli Sauce


1. Prepare the marinade; place the lamb into a shallow bowl. Mix the marinade ingredients together and pour over the lamb. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or overnight.
2. Meanwhile prepare the roasted vegetables, place the vegetables in a large ovenproof casserole dish or roasting tray. Tear the herbs and add to the tray, season, drizzle with olive oil and lightly toss. Roast uncovered for 40-50 minutes in a preheated oven, Gas mark 6, 200C/400F, until golden brown, shaking the pan occasionally during cooking.
3. To make the sweet chilli sauce, place the vinegar and caster sugar into a small pan and heat gently, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the chilli, coriander and shallot. Transfer to a small dish to cool until required.
4. Thread the lamb cubes onto 6 metal or wooded (previously soaked in water) and cook on a prepared barbecue or preheated grill for 12-16 minutes, turning occasionally until the meat juices run clear.
5. Serve the kebabs with the roasted summer vegetables and the sweet chilli sauce.
