Balkan kebabs with roasted potato salad

These two Croatian specialties, Cevapi, a spicy sausage, and Raznjici, beef kebabs, are typical Balkan ways of cooking meat. Both are delicious, homely fare traditionally served as part of a picnic menu in summer, and eaten in home-style restaurants year round.

Lemon garlic dressing


1.Preheat oven to 190°C.
2.Scrub unpeeled potatoes, dry with absorbent paper; quarter lengthways. Place potato, in single layer, in medium baking dish; drizzle with oil. Roast, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until tender.
3.Meanwhile, using hands, combine mince, garlic, pepper, egg white and breadcrumbs in medium bowl; shape mixture into 8 sausages. Thread one sausage onto each of 8 skewers, cover; refrigerate 15 minutes.
4.Thread rump onto 8 remaining skewers; sprinkle with paprika. Cook rump and sausage skewers, in batches, on heated oiled grill plate (or grill or barbecue) until browned all over and cooked as desired.
5.Combine yoghurt and coriander in small bowl. To make lemon garlic dressing, combine ingredients in screw-top jar; shake well. Pour over potato in large serving bowl; toss to combine.
6.Serve potato salad with skewers; pass yoghurt mixture separately.

Soak bamboo skewers in cold water for at least 1 hour before use, to prevent them from scorching and splintering.
