INGREDIENTS

1 pound of ground bison
3 tablespoons of minced onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
1/4 cup of finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup of finely chopped mint
1 1/2 teaspoons of ground coriander seed
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1 whole finger of minced chili
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
Olive oil, for brushing the grill
Flat bread, for serving

METHOD

1. Mix the bison, onion, garlic, parsley, mint, coriander, cumin, chili, salt and pepper together in a bowl
2. Divide the mixture into 6 even balls. Mold each ball around the pointed end of a skewer making an oval kebab that comes to a point just covering the tip of the skewer. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 15 minutes before threading them. 
3. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat or prepare a grill. Brush the pan lightly with olive oil. Grill the kebabs, turning occasionally until brown all over and cooked through, about 10 minutes.
4. Transfer to a serving platter and serve with tzatziki sauce, flat bread and a nice salad.
