No barbecue is complete without some trusty kebabs – try these Mediterranean versions for something new to make the neighbours jealous


  • For the kebabs:
  • 700g (1½ lb) British turkey diced thigh
  • 1 large courgette, sliced into 1cm (½ in) thick chunks
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 large green peppers, seeded and cut into 3cm (1¼ in) pieces
  • 1 large onion, cut into 3cm (1¼ in) pieces
  • Salt and pepper
  • For the marinade:
  • 120ml (4fl oz) olive oil
  • 200ml (7fl oz) freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika


  • Mix all the marinade ingredients in a jug, whisking well to combine.

  • Place the turkey into a large bowl and pour over the marinade. Leave to marinade for 30 min or overnight.

  • To prepare the kebabs, thread the turkey on to skewers, reserving the marinade. Alternate with courgette, cherry tomatoes, peppers and onion until all the ingredients are used up (about 12 kebabs).

  • Season with salt and pepper and then place in the fridge while you light the barbecue.

  • Once you are ready to cook, place the kebabs on the barbecue for 8-10 mins, basting with the reserved marinade, until cooked through.
