Tender meat and colourful vegetables, perfectly portioned and grilled to perfection makes skewers a popular choice for barbecue gatherings. As an added bonus, they can be prepared 1 day ahead. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a crowd. You can use either 20-25cm wooden or metal skewers. If using wooden skewers, soak them in a dish of cold water for 30 minutes before threading with ingredients to prevent them from burning during cooking.
