  • 2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  • 25ml warm water

How to make

Pinchitos MorunosStep 1

Place the Moorish spice mix in a large bowl. Add garlic cloves, 25ml water, 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar and 2 teaspoons olive oil. Mix (whisk) thoroughly.

Step 2

Place diced chicken breast/pork in the bowl. Rub the marinade into the meat ensuring each piece is thoroughly coated.

Step 3

Cover and marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour – the longer the better.  If using wooden skewers – soak in water.

Step 4

Take the marinated chicken/pork from the fridge and place closely together on the skewers, removing excess moisture from wooden skewers.

Step 5

Place under a medium/ high grill and cook, turning regularly, until juicy, not pink inside.
