400g minced beef
1 tsp ground cumin
Sea salt & freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing
4 tbsp natural yogurt

Preparation method

1.  Preheat the grill to high.  In a large bowl mix the minced beef with the cumin and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.  Divide the mince into 8 sausage shapes and brush with olive oil.

2.  Place the kebabs under the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and tender.

3.  Meanwhile place a tablespoon of natural yogurt onto each of the tortillas and spread with the back of a spoon.  Then add equal quantities of the walnuts, mozzarella, mint, parsley, spring onions, lemon zest and a good sprinkling of pepper.

4.  Place two kebabs on top of the tortillas and roll up tightly, tucking in the edges.  In a large frying pan heat the oil and add the kebabs frying 1 minute on each side until golden brown and crispy.

5.  To serve, cut the kebabs in half and serve with a summer salad and a wedge of lemon, enjoy!
