  • 1 lb. ground skinless, boneless turkey breast
  • 1 onion, peeled, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds, toasted, crushed
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • vegetable or sunflower oil for cooking
  • For the fresh tomato salsa:
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped
  • 1 small red onions, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 garlic clove, crushed
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • salt and freshly ground pepper



Mix all the ingredients for the kebabs in a bowl with two tablespoons of water. Season the mixture to taste and chill for one hour.


Divide the mixture into 8 evenly sized kebabs, then with wet hands, shape each kebab around a wooden skewer in a sausage shape; brush with oil.


Heat the pan grill until hot, place the skewers on it and cook for about 7-10 minutes, turning them regularly.


For the salsa: mix all the ingredients together, leave to infuse for an hour in the refrigerator.


Serve over toasted pita with tomato salsa.
