Like all the recipes posted in our blog and included in the Our Galley series of e-books, every one of these dishes have been prepared by Karen in the galley on board 'Our Dreamtime'. Living on the hook or in a marina doesn't mean you can't eat great meals.
Made with fragrant spices, roasted nuts, herbs and aromatics, these lamb kofta will take your taste buds on an adventure. We discovered Koftas in Gibraltar in a tiny lane way where an elderly Moroccan gentleman cooked Koftas and Kebabs over the Hibachi Gill in the laneway. Kofta is a Middle Eastern dish made from ground lamb or beef mixed with aromatics like onions and spices. I was fortunate to be welcomed into his tiny prep kitchen and found his secret was to add minced vegetables, toasted nuts, herbs, and spices to the meat to give the kofta deep, complex flavour. He served them with the simple sides of Tzatziki, Tomato and Onion Salad dressed in Red Wine Vinegar and a pinch of salt and sugar.
