With the exception of yesterday’s rain, we’ve been having some serious BBQ weather here in the Netherlands. Which means plenty of healthy fruits and salads, icy tinto de verano to cool us down after work, and colorful dishes enjoyed outdoors.
These tasty skewers are perfect for the barbecue or grill. You’ll want to marinate the meat well in advance. Go ahead and use your fingers to rub the marinade into the meat. You can serve these tasty brochettes with a couscous or bulgur salad (like I did).
550g pork shoulder, cubed
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp whole pink peppercorns
juice of ½ a lemon
1 ½ tbsp chilli oil
salt (preferably fleur de sel)
Put all of the ingredients in a bowl. Rub the marinade into the meat using your hands. Allow to marinate for 3-5 hours or overnight. Thread the meat through the skewers and grill for about 15-20 minutes. Serve with slices of lemon.
