Seasoned pork mixed with peppers, couscous, spring onions, kidney beans, orange and lime zest and black onion seeds on bamboo skewers.


  • 2 tbsp dried couscous
  • 500g lean pork mince (5% fat or less)
  • ½ small yellow pepper, deseeded and chopped
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • Zest of 1 large orange
  • Zest of 2 limes
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp onion seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.
  2. Put the couscous in a small bowl, pour over 3 tablespoons boiling water and cover with cling film. Leave to stand for 5 minutes or until the water has been absorbed.
  3. Put the couscous and all the ingredients except the onion seeds into a food processor. Season lightly and whizz until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl and, using clean hands, divide the mixture into 16 equal portions. Form each portion into a meatball.
  4. Thread two meatballs on to a metal skewer (or a wooden skewer soaked in water for at least 20 minutes) and place on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Repeat until you have 8 skewers then sprinkle the onion seeds over the meatballs and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
  5. Serve hot with a green salad. Enjoy!
