Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Cut the meat into smaller pieces. Combine oil, lemon juice, grated zest (only the outermost, yellow part of the rind) and spices in a bowl. Add meat, mix and marinate for at least 10 minutes. You can also prepare it the day before – just cover with plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator.
  2. Thread meat onto skewers before you start grilling. Salt and pepper.
  3. Mix ingredients for the aioli in a bowl.
  4. Combine olive oil, red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard in a bowl big enough for the salad too.
  5. Rinse, peel and dice daikon. Soak for 1-2 minutes in lightly salted water. Remove and rinse in cold water or serve lukewarm.
  6. Rinse, clean and chop radishes. Finely chop red onion and chives. Put everything in the vinaigrette bowl and mix well. Salt and pepper.
  7. Place skewers on the hot grill and grill for 15 minutes or until the meat is cooked as you want it – rare, medium or well done. Serve with salad and aioli.

Tip!

If you're using bamboo or wooden skewers, pre-soak them for at least an hour to avoid burning in the oven or on the grill.

Preparing in the oven

Preheat the oven to 450°F (225°C), preferably with the broil function on. Place skewers on a wire rack with a baking tray underneath. Broil for 15 minutes or until the meat is cooked through.

Keto: Dairy free #6

Following a healthy dairy-free diet doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself — and this week’s meal plan is proof of that.

On the menu, we have some spice-heavy keto dishes like our Sindhi-style lamb curry. Additionally, there are some quick and easy weeknight favorites such as our tasty tuna zoodle salad and chicken stir-fry.

While following this plan, if you’re not a big fan of certain ingredients, feel free to swap them. If, for example, you don’t enjoy eating lamb, you could always substitute it for chicken or beef.

The same goes for vegetables. If there’s something you don’t fancy, change it for another low-carb veggie. Check out our visual vegetable guide for more inspiration.

Get ready to enjoy some of our favorite keto meals while staying below 20 grams of net carbs per day.

    The recipe states "Rinse, peel and dice daikon. Soak for 1-2 minutes in lightly salted water. Remove and rinse in cold water or serve lukewarm." As it talks about rinsing in cold water or serving lukewarm, should that be "simmer for 1-2 minutes" instead of "soak"?

    Lukewarm = room temperature, not necessarily icy cold but not hot either.
