The distinctively Greek marinade of oregano, mint, lemon and garlic makes these tempting pork skewers unforgettable!


  • Finely grated zest and juice of 3 unwaxed lemons
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp dried mint
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 500g lean pork fillet, visible fat removed, cut into chunks
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 onions, cut into wedges
  • 1 red pepper, halved, deseeded and cut into large chunks
  • 1 yellow pepper, halved, deseeded and cut into large chunks
  • Small handful of finely chopped fresh basil or Greek basil leaves, to garnish


  1. Mix the lemon zest and juice, oregano, mint and garlic in a shallow
    bowl. Add the pork, season to taste and mix together. Marinate in the
    fridge for 4 hours or overnight if time permits.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium-hot.
  3. Thread the pork, onion wedges and pepper pieces on to eight metal
    skewers (or wooden skewers soaked in water for 20 minutes to stop
    them burning). Grill the kebabs for 5-6 minutes on each side or until
    cooked through.
  4. Scatter over the basil and serve hot with plenty of salad.
