With less than 1g of fat per serving, these delicious jerk turkey skewers are the perfect meal if you’re watching what you eat

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp jerk seasoning
  • 2 tbsp dark soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 350g turkey escalopes or steaks
  • 100-120g carton ready prepared pineapple
  • Jacket potatoes, low-fat Greek yogurt and salad, to serve

Method

  • Mix together jerk seasoning, sugar, vinegar and soy sauce in a shallow dish. Place the turkey in the mixture and turn it to coat well. Cover the dish and chill it in the fridge to let it marinate for at least 1 hr or overnight.

  • Cut the turkey into narrow strips and thread it on to skewers, zigzagging it with some of the pineapple cubes.

  • Cook the skewers under a hot grill for about 8-10 mins, basting them with any leftover marinade, and turning them occasionally — make sure that they are thoroughly cooked after the marinade has been brushed on them, as it will contain raw meat juices.

  • Serve each turkey skewer with a jacket potato, that’s been split and a little Greek yogurt spooned into it, and some salad.

Top Tip

Tinned pineapple in juice can be used instead of fresh pineapple, but drain it well before using it.
