    French Tart's Note:

    Pinchitos Morunos (Moorish Skewers) are extremely popular as a Tapa, partuclarly in Andalucia. They are of Moorish origin, and are usually made from Lamb or Pork, I have used Chicken as the meat in this recipe, but I have listed other options! They are marinated in a Moorish saffron & spice mix and usually grilled outside and over charcoal or wood; however, they also cook beautifully on a griddle or in a heavy griddle type pan inside, during the cooler months. These are my favourite meat skewers and make a regular appearance on the "Al Fresco Lunch Table" during the Summer months. Great finger food for friends - or you can increase the quantities and make a meal of them. Serve them with a simple Tomato & Parsley Salad with my Sherry Vinegar Dressing, Flatbreads & Pickles for a true taste of Spain!

    MEAT SKEWERS

    MARINADE

    GARNISH

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the chicken breasts,lamb or pork into cubes about 1" in size. Flatten them slightly with the palm of your hand.
    2. 2
      Place the meat in a large bowl and add the dried spices, garlic & salt, saffron infused water, oregano, bay leaf and vinegar - mix thouroughly.
    3. 3
      Then add the olive oil - mix again thoroughly, cover with cling film and leave in the fridge for between 2 & 12 hours, so the flavours mingle and marinade into the meat.
    4. 4
      Light the barbecue about half an hour before cooking and allow the charcoal or wood to flare and then glow.
    5. 5
      If cooking inside, turn the grill up to high, or use a smoking hot griddle or griddle pan.
    6. 6
      Thread the meat on to the skewers.
    7. 7
      Grill for about 5 minutes on each side, or until the outside is charred and the inside is still juicy but cooked. (NOT pink for pork and chicken - but pink for lamb).
    8. 8
      Season well with salt and pepper and sprinkle with chopped flat leaf parsley or fresh coriander (Cilantro), serve with a selection of salads, flat breads, pickles and Sherry vinegar dressing.

      I marinated this 24hrs to get the full effect...this was my first experience cooking with saffron (which, I might add, cost $10 just for a tiny amt!) and although this was okay, I wouldn't make it again. Just too strong of flavors, perhaps because it was a new flavor I wasn't as crazy about it. My husband thought it was good enough to make again, though.

      A Rota reunion here ! I was there for 2 years, 1971--2! This recipe looks authentic and I'll be trying it, and adding chilli.

      Nice flavours, but as we tend to be spicy people we would like to add a hint of chilli and perhaps rate it again. Lovely flavours though Tart :)
