    Step 7: If you’re using a BBQ, you’ll only need around 5 minutes to cook, ensure you turn 2-3 times during cooking. Half your lemon and cook flesh down until chargrilled and use to squeeze over your kebabs. If you’re using a grill, you’ll need around 5-8 minutes, turning 2-3 times during cooking. Half your lemon and grill with your kebabs, it doesn’t need to be chargrilled.
