Harissa beef skewers with avocado dip
- Preparation and cooking time
- plus 1 hr marinating
- Makes 16
These tasty spiced skewers work just as well with lamb or chicken. For a vegetarian alternative, use chunky pieces of halloumi cheese
For the dip
- STEP 1
You’ll need 16 skewers. If using wooden ones, soak in water for 30 mins first to prevent them from burning. Whisk the lime juice, harissa and honey in a large bowl. Add the beef strips and toss everything together. Leave to marinate for at least 1 hr (or up to 4 hrs if you have time).
- STEP 2
To make the dip, whizz all the ingredients together in a food processor, then chill until needed.
- STEP 3
Heat the barbecue or a griddle pan until smoking hot. Thread 2 pieces of beef onto each skewer, winding them around the skewer as you do, then season. Cook for 1 min on each side for medium- rare skewers, or longer if you prefer them well done. Serve warm with the dip.
