This is Part 2 of my #zerowaste from the Pea Peels recipe. Hope you have had a chance to look at my Pea peels Chutney recipe as well. These are the best ways to save and make the best use of the Pea and its surprisingly fresh, crunchy and sweet peels.

These Shammi kebabs are a great way of using the peels. They make a lovely tea time snack or could be had as a starter to your dinner or lunch.
