  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 160g mixed salad leaves
  • For the Peri Peri sauce:

Method

  1. Place all the Peri Peri ingredients in a food processor and blend into a smooth marinade.
  2. Put the turkey in a bowl and add the Peri Peri sauce. Using your hands, mix, coating all sides of the turkey in the marinade – be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before and afterwards. Cover and refrigerate for 1–2 hours for a stronger flavour.
  3. Alternating between turkey, pepper and cherry tomatoes, assemble four kebabs on skewers.
  4. Turn the grill on to high.
  5. Transfer the kebabs onto a foil-lined baking tray and cook under the grill 15–20 minutes, turning occasionally, until the turkey is cooked through.
  6. Serve on a bed of salad leaves.

If you make more than you need, refrigerate the extra kebabs and have cold the next day
