Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Turkish Mixed Grill With Bulgur Pilaf

Cut the lemon[s] in half

Combine the harissa paste (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) with the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon and a generous pinch of salt in a bowl – this is your harissa marinade

Cut the chicken thigh fillets into strips, add them to the harissa marinade and mix well

Thread the chicken strips evenly onto each skewer and pop them in the fridge until later

2 Turkish Mixed Grill With Bulgur Pilaf

Meanwhile, combine the lamb mince, ras el hanout, panko breadcrumbs and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] water in a bowl

Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and mix well

Divide the lamb mixture into 2 [4] balls

Press each ball into a sausage shape, and then flatten into a rectangular patty – these are your adana kebabs

Pop them in the fridge for later 

3 Turkish Mixed Grill With Bulgur Pilaf

Pre-heat the grill to medium-high

Boil a kettle

Deseed the green pepper[s] (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and dice

Cut the tomato[es] in half 

Dice 1/2 [1] tomato and cut the remaining tomato into 2 [4] wedges

4 Turkish Mixed Grill With Bulgur Pilaf

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a matching lid, with a large knob of butter over a medium heat

Once melted, add the diced pepper and diced tomato with a pinch of salt

Cook for 4-5 min or until everything's softened

5 Turkish Mixed Grill With Bulgur Pilaf

Meanwhile, dissolve 1/2 [1] chicken stock cube in 250ml [450ml] boiled water

Add the tomato paste to the pan and cook for 1 min

Add the bulgur wheat with the chicken stock and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, for 15 min or until the water has absorbed and the bulgur is cooked – this is your bulgur pilaf

6 Turkish Mixed Grill With Bulgur Pilaf

Meanwhile, add the harissa chicken skewers, adana kebabs and remaining tomato wedges to a baking tray (use tin foil to avoid mess!)

Put the tray under the grill for 6-8 min, turning once halfway through, or until everything's cooked through and slightly charred 

7 Turkish Mixed Grill With Bulgur Pilaf

Meanwhile, squeeze the remaining lemon into a large mixing bowl 

Add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil, a generous pinch of salt and pepper and mix to combine – this is your lemon dressing

Wash and pat the rocket salad dry, then add it to the lemon dressing and give everything a good mix up
