What to serve with these BBQ kebabs
I’ve served my BBQ kebabs with a quick and easy couscous – simply make couscous using a vegetable or chicken stock cube for flavour, drizzle in a little olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice and your favourite additions. I’ve added dried raisins, lemon zest, chopped almonds and pomegranate seeds. Season well and serve!
Plain natural yoghurt is a good accompaniment too, as it will help cool the heat of the chilli if needed. The addition of flatbreads makes it into a complete meal.
Alternatively, serve with your favourite BBQ side salad.
About SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham
SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham have been bringing Sizzle Pork And Mmm™ to UK meals since 1941.
It came to the UK during the war as an alternative to corned beef and rose quickly in popularity, selling its one billionth can in the 1950s. In the 1960s SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham fritters regularly appeared on British school menus.
This iconic product is originally from the US when, in 1937, the Hormel Food Company of Minnesota dealt with a problem they had of too much pork shoulder. The idea to grind the pork shoulder and mix it with ham, cooking it in a tin to create a long life product was born, and now, over 80 years later, it’s still going strong!
An incredibly versatile ingredient, SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham is made from a minimum of 90% shoulder pork and leg ham. The 200g tub is currently available in the UK from Tesco and Asda while 200g and 340g cans are available from all major UK supermarkets.
