Shish Kebabs


These shish kebabs hearken back to the days of the Moors. The meat is infused with a zesty marinade!  Be sure to marinate them overnight for the best flavor.  While we prefer to use pork, you can try the marinade with lamb or other meats. 

Prep Time: 20 min.[PT20M]

Cook Time: 10 min.[PT10M]


1 pound loin of pork
3 - 4 lemons, cut and squeezed, with the rinds included in the marinade
3 tbsp cumin
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped garlic
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 ample pinch of saffron


Cube pork into 1" pieces, season with salt and pepper and set aside. Mix the marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Add the pork pieces to the bowl, mix well and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.

Soak wooden skewers in water before using. 10 minutes before grilling, skewer the pork pieces. Place directly on hot grill, turning frequently until fullly cooked. Remove and serve.

Serve with rice, crusty bread and a fresh salad. Serves 2 - 4 people.
