    This is the closest to the authentic pincho morunos recipe famously served by the Belkhir family for over 50 years in Bilbao.
    Pinchos morunos which translate to ‘moorish skewers’ are of North African origin and although majority of recipes tell you to use pork, authentic pincho morunos are made from lamb because pork meat is prohibited by Islamic dietary laws. The diced lamb is marinated overnight in a blend of North African spices before cooking them on a hot barbecue. The result are juicy Spanish skewers that will have your mind wandering to southern Spain and Morocco.
