Mediterranean Fish Skewers
Serves: 2
 
Ingredients
  • 350g firm-fleshed fish such as Halibut, cut into bite size chunks
  • 1 red onion, quartered and coarsely sliced
  • 2 red bell peppers, deseeded and coarsely sliced
  • 1 lemon, cut into small wedges
  • 5 – 6 fresh bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (for roasting the vegetables)
  • For the marinade:
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 – 2 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges to serve
Instructions
  1. Preheat your barbeque to a medium-high heat.
  2. Cut the skinned, boneless fish (halibut or any firm-fleshed fish) into bite size (about 3 cm/1.2” in.) chunks.
  3. Place the fish in a bowl and stir in the olive oil, lemon juice and chilli flakes. Season the fish with salt and ground black pepper. Gently coat the chunks of the fish with this marinade.
  4. Cover the bowl and set aside for 15 minutes to marinate and for the fish to absorb the flavours.
  5. Thread the fish onto the skewers, alternating with a wedge of lemon, red onion slice, red and green pepper slices. Thread one or two bay leaves into each skewer. Brush the kebabs with any leftover marinade.
  6. Place the skewers your barbeque grill. Cook until fish is cooked through (about 10min), turning the skewer once.
  7. Serve the fish skewers hot with roasted vegetables, potatoes or rice and a wedge of lemon by the side.
