Tuscan Pork Kebabs

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 20 mins
Cooking time: 12 mins

Ingredients:

  • 500g fillet of pork
  • 24 small baby potatoes
  • 2 small red onions
  • 2 red peppers
  • Lemon wedges and fresh herbs, to serve

Tuscan Marinade: :

  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 2 dried chillies
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • Rosemary sprig, chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 150ml Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Method:

Make the marinade by crushing the peppercorns, dried chillies and fennel seeds then add a pinch of salt. Add the garlic and rosemary and crush together with the lemon and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Cut the pork into about 24 pieces and put into a glass dish with the Tuscan mari-nade, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Meanwhile, soak 8 wooden skewers in water. Cook the potatoes until just tender and drain. Peel and quarter the onions, de-seed the pepper and cut into chunks.

Thread the pork pieces onto the skewers with the potatoes, pepper pieces and onion wedges, brush with the marinade then cook on a griddle or a prepared barbecue for about 6 minutes each side.

Cooks tips:

If you like your kebabs to really pack a punch, add 1 tsp of chilli powder to the marinade.
