Ingredients

  • 3 small lemons
  • 500g pork fillet (tenderloin), trimmed of all fat and cut into 32 small pieces
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp each ground cumin, coriander and turmeric
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 4 tbsp 0% fat Greek yogurt
  • 16 fresh bay leaves
  • 16 whole pickled red chillies (optional)
  • 3 red onions, thickly sliced
  • 3 beef tomatoes, thickly sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
  • Large handful torn fresh flatleaf parsley

Method

  1. Finely grate the zest from 1 lemon and squeeze the juice. Put both into a bowl with the pork, garlic, oregano, ground spices and yogurt. Mix well, cover and set aside to marinate for at least 20 minutes (or up to 2 hours if you have the time).
  2. Preheat the grill to hot. Cut each of the remaining lemons into 8 wedges. Thread 4 pieces of pork, 2 wedges of lemon, 2 bay leaves and 2 chillies alternately on each skewer. Arrange on a large foil-lined grill tray and grill for 15 minutes, turning, until the pork is cooked through and lightly charred.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/ gas 4, and heat a large griddle pan until smoking. Brush the onions and tomatoes with the oil and season well. Chargrill the onions for 5 minutes, turn them over and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a baking dish and keep hot in the oven while you cook the tomatoes. Add the tomatoes to the griddle pan and chargrill for 2-3 minutes, without turning.
  5. Pile the tomatoes onto serving plates with the onions and sprinkle over some balsamic vinegar and flatleaf parsley. Arrange the spiced pork skewers on top to serve.
