Cook the kebabs under a preheated moderate grill or on a prepared barbecue for a few minutes on each side. Turn to prevent any burning. Transfer to a warm plate to rest.
To prepare the avocado and beetroot salsa; in a small bowl mix all the salsa ingredients together (except the sour cream or low-fat crème fraîche). Spoon the salsa into the taco trays or shells and position the kebabs on top.
Serve the kebabs and tacos with the salsa and the sour cream or crème fraîche on the side.
