Mediterranean Souvlakia

Feeds 6 – 8

When it comes to Souvla, sometimes less is more

This super simple Mediterranean Souvlakia recipe will leave your friends in absolute awe of your Souvla Braai.

Accessories needed:

• Souvlaki Skewers
• Flat Grill

Ingredients

• Chicken or lamb chunks
• Olive oil
• Lemon juice
• Garlic (minced)
• Fresh oregano
• Salt and pepper
• Pita bread (At least 1 per person)

Instructions

Now that you have your ingredients ready, prepare a fire and make sure everyone is hungry!

Step 1: Thread your chicken or lamb chunks onto your small skewers. Leave a slight gap between pieces to ensure even cooking. Ensure pieces are threaded tightly onto the skewer to prevent free-spinning.

Step 2: Once your fire is at cooking temperature, insert the skewers and switch on your motor. Do not spice the meat at all.

Step 3: While your meat is cooking, prepare your basting by mixing the ingredients in a bowl.

Step 4: Once the meat is about 60% cooked, use a basting brush and start basting your meat on the braai. Continue to do this as the meat starts to crisp. Be sure to save some of your basting for the pita. Once the meat is cooked and crispy, remove the meat from the braai.

Step 5: While the meat cools to eating temperature, place your pitas on the flat grill. Allow one side to toast slightly before turning it over. Once turned over, baste the toasted side and repeat the process with the other side.
* Only baste each side of the pita once toasted as this will prevent it from becoming soggy.

Step 6: Time to eat and enjoy some Mediterranean Souvlakia!
* Consume in any manner you please. Use your hands or make a shawarma.
* Tzatziki may be used as an additional ‘dip’ to compliment the Souvlakia.
