A small version of these skewers would make an easy canape and the paprika oil can be used to flavour lamb and seafood.


8 wooden bamboo skewers

1 tbsp smoked paprika

4 garlic cloves, squashed



1/2 cup olive oil

6 chicken thighs, skin off, boned, cut into cubes

8 slices sourdough bread

300g hummus


Soak skewers in water. Preheat a grill or barbecue.

Mix paprika, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil in a bowl. Skewer chicken pieces. Brush with paprika mix and grill until cooked through. They can also be pan-fried.

Brush bread lightly with oil from the paprika mix and grill on both sides. Cut in half and serve with the chicken and hummus. A salad of rocket leaves makes a excellent side for this meal.
