1 To make marinade, place marinade ingredients in a deep bowl and stir to mix.
2 Dice beef in thick cubes and add to marinade. Mix gently to coat meat then marinate in fridge for at least an hour.
3 Pierce meat and vegetables alternately, in their listed order, on skewers until skewers are full. Refrigerate prepared kebabs in a sealed container until ready to use.
4 Sear and cook skewers on the barbecue for 3 minutes each side (medium-rare) or until cooked to your liking.
5 Serve with grilled pita bread halves filled with salad greens.

Ben says: “These kebabs are great as you can prepare them in advance on the boat (or at home), then head to the beach with a portable barbecue, or stay aboard and cook. Kebabs make a delicious meal and there’s no need for plates, cutlery or dishes.”
