Method

Famed for their presence at street food events throughout Brazil, Espetinhos are Portuguese kebabs - simple and tasty, and the possibility of combinations are endless!

  1. Cook the potatoes for about 5 minutes and drain. The potatoes won’t be cooked at this stage.
  2. Take a skewer and thread through a potato on followed by a piece of corn, pineapple and red onion, finishing with a potato. Repeat with the remaining skewers.
  3. Mix all the spices together with the olive oil and using a pastry brush, brush all over the potatoes and vegetables. Cook under a preheated moderate grill for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally or on a prepared BBQ (indirect heat for 20 minutes, 10 minutes on direct heat) until the potatoes are cooked, and the other vegetables are nicely charred.
  4. Serve with rice, salad and if you fancy, a little chilli sauce.
