Calories: 288kcal

Ingredients

For The Skewers:

  • 700 grams boneless pork neck
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano plus some extra for garnish
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 wooden skewers

For The Ladolemono Dressing:

  • 1 lemon juiced
  • olive oil

Instructions

For The Skewers:

  • Cut the meat into small 2cm x 2cm square pieces. About 1 cm thick.
  • Thread the meat on wooden skewers. Once you're done, add the skewers in a small baking pan or food storage box.
  • Pour the lemon juice and olive oil. Add the oregano and a bit of pepper and mix well. Flip the skewers a few times for the marinade to spread evenly.
  • Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours or overnight for an even stronger flavor.
  • Grill the meat for 10-15 minutes turning them every now and then.

For The Ladolemono Dressing:

  • In a dressing container (one that you can shake and comes with a small hole), add the lemon juice and 2/3 of olive oil.
  • Shake the container until a creamy dressing forms and pour over the souvlakis, right as they come out of the grill.
  • Serve with a sprinkle of oregano on top.

Notes

-If you are cooking on a BBQ be careful not to burn the wooden skewers. Try placing the skewers in a way that their bottom is on a spot where there is not too much flame.
-If you do not have a dressing container for the Ladolemono dressing, use an empty bottle of water and make a small hole on its lid.
