Cook the potatoes for about 5 minutes and drain. The potatoes won’t be cooked at this stage.

Take a skewer and thread a potato on followed by a piece of corn, pineapple and red onion and repeat finishing with a potato. Do this for the three remaining skewers.

Mix all the spices together with the olive oil and using a pastry brush, brush all over the potatoes and vegetables. Cook under a pre-heated grill or on the BBQ until the potatoes are cooked, and the other vegetables are nicely charred.

Serve with rice, salad and a little chilli sauce if you fancy.

1 Large red onion, cut into 8 wedges
