WHB – Oregano Crusted Wavy Skewers

Wavy skewers
(adapted from Sale & Pepe, Serbian issue, March 2008)


600 g very thin pork steaks
1 large zucchini
200 g smoked cheese
60 g bread crumbs
zest of one lemon
1/2 Tbsp oregano
1 egg

Cut zucchini into thin wide ribbons and grill them a little. This is necessary so they become soft. Cut steaks and cheese into wide ribbons.

Assemble the skewers: Take one meat ribbon, place one zucchini ribbon over, then cheese, zucchini and one more meat ribbon. Put on a skewer.

Wavy skewers in the making

Coating: Mix together bread crumbs, lemon zest and oregano. Beat egg. First, using a brush, coat skewers in egg, then in bread crumbs.

Fry in oil, for about 5 minutes on both sides,or until meat is done, it depends on the thickness of steaks.

    we don’t eat pork (only in kolbasa), but i want to say this looks amazingly beautiful! you are a genius. And now let me tell you I understand some Serbian. Proof? Here’s what the first commenter tijana said: Great blog! Everything is so professional, the design and style. Great! Comment #2: Could you please tell me what camera you are using?Am I right?:)) It’s just I speak Russian and the two languages are incredibly close to each other, which doesn’t make me a genius at all:)

    These look incredibly good. I can almost taste the cheese melting into the meat and veg. Thanks for entering it into Weekend Herb Blogging!
