These are really simple and tasty. Serve with rice and sauteed spinach, or a salad with cucumber or zucchini and yogurt-mint sauce.
1 lb. ground lamb
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon Sambal-oelek (Asian chili paste; you can substitute 1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper instead)
zest from 1/2 lemon, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp dried coriander
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Mix meat and spices together, and form into cylinders. Cook in a grill pan until brown on all sides and cooked through.
