    Once your barbecue has preheated to the set temperature (SmokeFire: 270°C), brush the cooking grills clean with a wire brush.

  • Once the eggplants have charred, remove from the barbecue and set aside to cool slightly. Grill the lamb steaks and cherry tomatoes over direct medium-high heat for 4 minutes, flipping once halfway through the cooking time. Add the olives to the grill pan and grill for 4 minutes stirring once or twice; cook until the olives have a little caramelisation. Grill the lemons, cut side down for 2 minutes, or until caramelised.
  • While the lamb is cooking, cut the eggplants in half and scoop the inner flesh into a sieve, over a bowl. Using a spoon, mix the eggplant flesh around so that some liquid drains away. Place the eggplant into a blender with the rest of the Baba Ganoush ingredients. Juice the caramelised lemon to get 2 ½ tablespoons of juice and add to the blender. Save any left-over lemons to serve. Blitz until smooth. Spoon into a serving dish, drizzle with olive oil and top with a little sprinkle of the Greek Seasoning.
  • Remove the lamb, tomatoes, olives from the grill once cooked to your liking.
  • Grill the flatbreads for one minute per side. Keep the toasted flatbreads warm in aluminium foil until ready to serve. Slice the lamb.
  • Arrange the lamb, cherry tomatoes, grilled olives, spare caramelised lemon and flatbreads onto a serving platter. Garnish with fresh parsley. Serve with the Baba Ganoush.
