To make cevapcici, place all ingredients in a large bowl and season with pepper. Use hands to mix ingredients together for 2-3 minutes until slightly sticky. Form mixture into 16 small log shapes and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, place all the salsa ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix to combine and set aside.

Combine ajvar and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Mix well to combine and set aside.

Heat a teppanyaki, grill plate or large frypan over medium heat. Cook flat breads for 1-2 minutes a side until golden and heated. Set aside and cover with a clean tea towel to keep warm. Lightly brush cevapcici with olive oil and grill for 8-10 minutes, turning, until cooked through.

Dollop some ajvar mayonnaise on warm flat bread, sit cevapcici in the middle and spoon some almond salsa over the top.
