  • To serve, rub oil on the skewers and season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat keeping the exposed end of the skewer as far from the flame as possible. Drizzle the plate with the mayonnaise and sprinkle some of the pepper hash on top. Slice the lemon in two and grill the exposed side. Place on the plate and prop the skewer up on the lemon.
