Meatball and Mediterranean vegetable kebabs

Throwing a barbecue? These meatball and Mediterranean vegetable kebabs are sure to be a real crowd-pleaser but are so easy to make, you could rustle them up for a speedy dinner any time the sun is shining. Simply skewer readymade meatballs with peppers, courgettes and red onions and grill for a smoky finish. These are delicious with garlic mayo (or your favourite sauce) to dip or drizzle over.

  1. Mix together the lemon zest, rosemary and olive oil and set aside to infuse. Get 8 long skewers ready, if using wooden skewers, soak in water for 10 mins first.
  2. Thread 3 meatballs and pieces of different veg onto each skewer, alternating between each. Brush all over with the lemon and rosemary marinade.
  3. Preheat a barbecue or griddle pan until very hot. Barbecue the skewers for 12-15 mins, turning often, until the meat is cooked through and the veg is tender and lightly charred.
  4. Serve the kebabs with lemon wedges to squeeze over and some aioli to drizzle or dip, if you like.
