  • 2 spring onions finely sliced lengthways
  • 1 lebanese cucumber sliced lengthways with a vegetable peeler
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 250 g cooked lamb
  • 2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoon boiling water
  • 2 flatbreads
  • Extra hoisin sauce to serve


  • Prepare the spring onions and cucumber.
  • Shred the lamb into small pieces, leaving some pieces larger than others - the smaller pieces will become crispy whilst slightly larger will remain juicy.
  • In a non stick pan over a medium heat fry the lamb in the olive oil for 5 minutes, stirring just occasionally to make sure all sides are golden and crispy.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix the hoisin sauce with the boiling water.
  • When the lamb is golden all over, pour this sauce over the lamb, stir, and turn off the heat. It will spit a little so take care. Stir again to coat all the lamb, then spoon into a serving bowl and serve straight away.
  • To serve, place half the lamb mixture on a flatbread, then top with a small handful of spring onion and a small handful of cucumber ribbons, drizzle over a little more hoisin sauce, if you want, then roll up and eat.


This recipe serves 2 people, but you can easily double or triple it.
Leftover lamb - I often use roast leg of lamb, but leftover roast shoulder would also work well in these wraps.
Spring onion - also called scallion or green onion, depending on where you live.
Cucumber - I often use Lebenese cucumbers, but you can use half an English cucumber in you prefer.
Wraps - any soft flatbread is good! Depending on the brand of wraps you use, they may need warming through under the grill for a minute or two. You can also use crispy iceberg lettuce leaves for a low carb option.
