Greek Pork Souvlaki

IMG_2165

With all the warm weather and sunshine we’ve been having (i’m going to ignore the fact that Mother Nature was trying to snow today) I have been getting really excited for spring! One of my favourite things about spring and summer is all the BBQ I don’t have to do but get to enjoy. My hubby is in charge of that department. I have purposely avoided all BBQ lessons in an attempt to keep it from becoming a part of my cooking resume. I like passing the buck (literally) over to my hubby when it’s that time of year. Firstly, it gives me a break in the kitchen since I only have to prepare the side dishes and secondly, I’m positive the result of me BBQ’ing would be charcoaled remnants of meat, a lack of all facial hair, third degree burns or a spontaneously combusting propane tank flying through the neighbours fence. So I steer clear of that genre of cooking.  But with the deck free of snow and the sun shining, I am more than happy to try some new recipes and send my hubby outdoors.

These souvlaki skewers were part of our greek dinner the other weekend and not only were they amazing but so easy to prepare! I chose pork but you could use whatever preference of meat you like. We served them aside greek salad, pita’s and tzatziki and lemon rice (recipe to come). I hope you like them!

Happy Monday everyone!
