Pork and Pepper Kebabs

This recipe is great for barbeques, but if the weather is not great BBQ weather …don’t worry …as these can be cooked indoors under the grill. It’s a nice (low salt) recipe for making pork and red pepper kebab skewers. Kebabs are easy, tasty and can be prepared beforehand. You will need 4 skewers for this recipe.
Ingredients - Serves 4 Adults
480g / 1 lb of diced lean pork
2 red or green peppers
For the Marinade:
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 red chilli, trimmed
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
zest and juice of ½ a lime
1 level teaspoon of paprika
Small bunch flat leaf parsley
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1) Place the balsamic vinegar and olive oil in a bowl
2) De-seed the chilli and slice it very thinly. Toss the chilli into the bowl and whisk
3) Add in the crushed garlic, the zest and juice of the lime and the paprika
4) Chop the parsley and stir into the marinade and season with some black pepper
5) Cut the pork into 6 to 8 chunks and add to the marinade, making sure that it is well coated
6) Cover with cling film and leave for at least 1 hour, or overnight
7) Chop the red peppers in half, de-seed and cut them into chunks.
8) Then thread a piece of pepper onto the skewer, followed by some marinated pork, and then continue until you have filled the skewer with meat and peppers
9) Repeat the process for the other 3 skewers
10) Place the kebabs on the hot barbeque and cook for approximately 20 minutes until they are cooked through, making sure that you turn them frequently and brush with the marinade occasionally
Carbs per portion is approx 4.3g

Personally I would serve these with a nice salad ..perhaps a crisp green one ..but you choose your favourite….and bon appetit.
All the best Jan
