Method

Famed for their presence at street food events throughout Brazil, Espetinhos are Portuguese kebabs - simple and tasty, and the possibility of combinations are endless!

  1. Cook the potatoes for about 5 minutes and drain. The potatoes won’t be cooked at this stage.
  2. Take a skewer and thread through a potato on followed by a piece of corn, pineapple and red onion, finishing with a potato. Repeat with the remaining skewers.
  3. Mix all the spices together with the olive oil and using a pastry brush, brush all over the potatoes and vegetables. Cook under a preheated moderate grill or on a prepared BBQ until the potatoes are cooked, and the other vegetables are nicely charred.
  4. Serve with rice, salad and if you fancy, a little chilli sauce.
