Skewer Ground Lamb Kebabs
 
Ingredients  
1 lb ground Lamb
2 tbsp good quality Tomato Paste
3 crushed garlic cloves 
3 tbsp extra virgin Olive Oil
2 heaping tspn dried Greek mint 
1/2 - 1 tsp cayenne pepper to taste 
 Salt
freshly ground Pepper
1  Egg Whites
6 8-inch flat metal skewers 
Toasted of grilled bread 
 
Preparation
1. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead very well until the mixture is compact and solid. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. 2. Heat the broiler or grill and lightly oil the rack on which the lamb skewers will be cooked. 3. Divide the meat into 6 equal portions and roll each into a 4-inch-long sausage. Dampen a paper towel with a little olive oil and wipe the skewers with the oil. Slip the skewers through the ground meat sausages and squeeze the mixture up and down the skewer, flattening it and pressing it to adhere to the skewer. Grill about 6 inches from the heat source for 7 to 8 minutes, turning to brown, until the meat is just cooked through. Remove and serve with pita bread and with either of the yogurt dips.
