Marinated pork skewers / Pinchitos morunos recipe

Have you ever heard of  Spanish pork skewers called Pinchos Morunos? Pork fillet dices marinated in spices. They’re really worth the try…

Preparation time: 20 mn (+ overnight marinade) – Cooking time: 30 mn

Ingredients (for about 10 skewers)

1.1 lbs (500 g) of pork fillets
1 onion
4 tablespoons of olive oil (click here to buy online)
2 teaspoons of cumin
1/2 teaspoon of pimentón (smoked paprika)
1/4 teaspoon of grinded black pepper
1 pinch of saffron


1/ Dice pork fillet. (Smaller pieces will get tastier with the marinade)

2/ Pour cumin, pimentón, black pepper and saffron in a bowl and mix them together.

3/ In a salad bowl, combine meat and spices.

4/ Add olive oil, a pinch of salt and stir again. Cover and leave it marinate in the fridge overnight.

5/ Thread 6 pieces of pork in each skewer.

6/ Heat grill on high heat. Grill skewers until inside meat is no longer pink or about 5 minutes. If you’re lucky enough to be making them on BBQ, they’ll take a little longer (around 15 minutes) but they’ll taste delicious :-)
