Our glaze recipes are for eight skewers. Try mix and matching them with our halloumi or seafood skewers.


  1. Slice the pork neck into 4cm strips, then toss with your chosen glaze. Leave to marinate for 2 hrs, then thread onto three large skewers. Light the barbecue. Once the flames have died down, cook the skewers for 5 mins on each side (or, cook in a griddle pan set over a high heat). Brush with the rest of the glaze, then cook for a further 2-3 mins on each side, or until cooked through.
