Courgette Kebabs with Lemon Yoghurt

0:25 m

Marinated in a spicy, smoky harissa paste with a touch of cumin and chilli flakes, these courgette kebabs will fire up any gathering. Grill them up outside or indoors if it starts to rain (we do live in England after all) and serve them with our zingy lemon yogurt and a sweet, tangy apricot salsa.
