Pork souvlaki Recipe

Serve our speedy pork souvlaki skewers when you’re in need of a quick and easy midweek meal. Serve with flatbreads and yogurt and chili sauces on the side


  • 400g lean pork shoulder, cut into 2cm chunks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • ½ tsp hot paprika
  • 100ml fat-free yogurt
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated
  • ½ cucumber, trimmed and grated
  • 2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 2 Little Gem lettuce, leaves separated
  • chili sauce, to serve (optional)
  • flatbreads, warmed, to serve (optional)


Put the pork in a large bowl with the oil, oregano, lemon zest, juice, and paprika as well as a good pinch of salt. Toss everything together to combine and leave to marinate for 10 mins.

Combine the yogurt, garlic, and cucumber together in a bowl. Season with salt and set aside.

Heat the grill to high. Thread the marinated pork and the peppers on four metal skewers, alternating between the pork and peppers as you go. Place on a non-stick baking sheet and grill for 3-4 mins on each side, or until cooked through and golden brown.

Serve with the lettuce, yogurt mixture and chili sauce, and flatbreads, if you like.
