National Spam Appreciation Week - Spam and Halloumi Kebabs


As I already mentioned in an earlier post, I was sent some Spam to review ahead of National Spam Appreciation Week. I had a look at the Spam website for some recipes and thought the recipe for spam and halloumi kebabs sounded nice. I adapted it to make a honey and balsamic vinegar rather than chilli dressing and put a few different things on my kebabs with the Spam and halloumi cheese. 

These are very simple to make and you can use whatever ingredients you fancy, such as red or green peppers, mushrooms etc. I began by chopping the Spam into cubes.

 

I also chopped some halloumi and red onion, and par boiled some new potatoes.


To make the dressing, I mixed 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar with 1 tbsp runny honey.


Thread the Spam, halloumi, red onion and potato - or whatever you are using - onto cubes and pour over the marinade. If you have time, you could also marinade the ingredients in the liquid for half an hour.

Grill, turning a couple of times, until the onion has browned and the cheese has softened a little. Serve with a green salad or pitta bread.


These kebabs were very enjoyable and the Spam went well with the halloumi cheese, and the saltiness of the cheese contrasted perfectly with the sweeter dressing.
