1/2 tsp cumin seeds

1/2 tsp coriander seeds

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1 TB lemon juice

3 TB olive oil

1 1/4 lb lean cubed pork




Ideally, you'll be marinating the meat for 2 hours... but if you don't have the time, it'll still be just fine. You can also leave them to marinate a day ahead.


Grind the cumin and coriander seeds in a mortar, and work in the garlic with a pinch of salt.

Add the paprika and oregano, then mix in the lemon juice.

Stir in the olive oil.


Cut the pork into small cubes, then skewer them, three or four at a time, onto cocktail sticks (toothpicks).

Put the skewered meat in a shallow dish, and pour over the marinade.

Spoon the marinade back over the meat, to ensure it is well coated.

Leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.


Preheat the broiler to high, and line the grill pan with foil. Spread the kebabs out in a row and place them close to the heat.

Cook about 3 minutes on each side, spooning the juices over when you turn them, until the meat is cooked through.

Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper, and serve at once.
