Method
 
Lamb Kebabs
In a large mixing bowl rub the meat with the salt, pepper, cumin, coriander and sumac .
Thread the lamb cubes and onion quarters alternately onto the skewers.
Lay the skewers on a baking tray lined with greased foil and roast in the hot oven for 10 – 15 minutes, or until golden brown on the outside and pink in the middle, turning occasionally (don’t be shy to taste making sure it is not over cooked).
 
Couscous
Put the couscous in a large bowl, pour over the hot vegetable stock and add the olive oil and peas.
Stir, then cover with cling film and leave to soak, about 8 minutes.
Gently fluff up the grains using a fork, and stir in the carrot, herbs, lemon juice and olive oil. Mix everything well, season and set aside.
 
Mayonnaise
Mix all the ingredients for the mayonnaise together.
 
Serve lamb kebabs piled up on a plate dressed with the pomegranate syrup, fresh mint and dollops of the mayonnaise or serve the mayonnaise on the side with the couscous.
