Pork shoulder souvlaki with red onion relish

Pork shoulder souvlaki with red onion relish

I must confess, I quite like to have a kebab from time to time. I know it is not healthy, junk food etc. Don’t judge me, man got to have his weaknesses. It is my guilty pleasure, almost a tradition to have one after a night out. However, my kebab days are pretty much over.
