This recipe is my take on the kontosouvli, a souvlaki marinated in oregano and chilli. Kontosouvli is best known from Cyprus and is usually described as a souvlaki made with larger marinated pieces of pork. Equipment and preparation: for this recipe you will need skewers.
Mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and add the meat. Marinate for an hour or so.
Thread the cubes of meat on to skewers. Grill on a barbecue or under a hot grill for 10–12 minutes, turning until cooked through.
- 400g/14oz pork shoulder, cut into 3cm/1¼in cubes
For the marinade
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- ½ tsp ground cumin
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 small garlic clove, grated
- ½ tsp salt
