4 people


  • 4 pork loin steaks or medallions, fat removed, or 6 pork fillet medallions, cut into 1.5cm cubes
  • For the marinade

  • 1-2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped or 2-3 teaspoons garlic purée
  • 1 tablespoon low fat Greek yogurt
  • For the supergrain salad

  • 200g bulgur wheat
  • 100g baby spinach or rocket leaves
  • 3-4 tablespoons freshly chopped mint
  • Zest and juice of 1 small lemon
  • 100g fresh pomegranate seeds
  • 50g dried apricots, roughly chopped (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil



In a shallow bowl, mix together the marinade ingredients and season. Add the pork, stir to coat, cover and set aside for 10 minutes. 


Cook the bulgur wheat according to the packet instructions, drain, cool slightly then add the remaining salad ingredients. Season. Cover and set aside.


Thread the pork equally onto four medium metal skewers and cook under a prepared barbecue or preheated moderate grill for 10 minutes, turning the skewers regularly until brown all over and any juices run clear. Serve with the supergrain salad.


Additional Information


If using wooden skewers, soak in cold water for at least 15 minutes before use.

Alternatively, for extra speed serve the skewers with a ready prepared grained salad.
