“This is a wonderfully easy recipe to do and it is full of flavour and tastes great. I served the kebabs over salad but they can be served as part of a BBQ as one of several dishes being cooked and this dish also goes very well accompanied by a greek salad. They can also be cooked under the grill instead of on the BBQ so these make a perfect after work meal. I used 450g Piece of pork loin and I placed three pieces of meat on each skewer and got 3 skewers per person for the three of us, I think if you upped the weight by 100g it should work out for 4 people with 3 skewers each. This is perfect when served with an accompaniment such as salad or rice, if seving as is you would definitely want to up the weight of the pork fillet and bacon slices to make more skewers.”
