Ingredients

  • 500 grams lamb mince
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 tablespoons oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

To Serve

  • 1/2 cup Tzatziki Refer to recipe or store bought
  • 1 Lemon Cut into wedges
  • 1 cup Rocket leaves

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all meatball ingredients except olive oil. 

  2. Mix together thoroughly with your hands, ensuring all ingredients are evenly incorporated. By using your hands, the lamb fat starts to melt and helps glue the meatballs together. 

  3. Roll the mince into tablespoon size balls. 

  4. In a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Fry the meatballs for 7 – 10 minutes, turning regularly to ensure they are golden brown on all sides. 

  5. Check for doneness (a little pink in the middle is ok, it’s lamb!)

  6. Serve atop the rocket leaves with lemon wedges and tzatziki.
