  2. Prepare the kebabs alternating pepper, meat and onion; finish with a cherry tomato.
  3. Pre-heat the crunch plate for 5-6 minutes on high or following the manufacturer instructions.
  4. Place kebabs on the plate and cook on high 5 minutes, turn and cook for another 5 minutes, still on high.

Don't use metal skewers in the microwave, use wooden sticks. Soak them in water for 30 minutes as precaution.

If you don't have or don't like lamb meat, substitute lamb with beef without compunction. If you do like lamb, let us suggest a good Merlot as the perfect companion for these kebabs.

These kebabs come out juicier when previously marinated, however, skip this step if you are in a hurry and you'll be able to present perfectly cooked kebabs in about 15-16 minutes.
