Ingredients
  • For the Kebabs:
  • 16 ounces ground turkey
  • ½ cup minced onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup minced parsley
  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon each allspice, paprika, coriander, chili powder
  • 6 tablespoons Harissa paste
  • For the walnut sauce:
  • 1 cup walnuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons plain yoghurt
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon or so of Harissa paste for garnish
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients except Harissa paste with hands. Form into oblong patties - about ½ cup each.
  2. Chill for at least one hour - up to 8 hours.
  3. Grill over medium high heat on skewers for easy turning. Brush with Harissa paste for the last few minutes, and cook for a minute or two on each side.
  4. Blend all sauce ingredients together and serve, with a little Harissa paste swirled in, as a dipping sauce for the kebabs.
