Souvlaki aka meat skewers is one of the most popular dishes in Greece. This delicious meal is very simple to prepare and you will only need a few ingredients: meat, olive oil, lemon and herbs. I prefer lamb or pork but you can use beef, chicken or even turkey. The best thing about this keto recipe is that it's virtually zero-carb and will keep hunger at bay!
You can serve these tasty meat skewers with keto salads or dips including Greek salad or Melitzanosalata.
There are many more recipes in our KetoDiet App that pair well with Souvlaki: Tzatziki, Mediterranean salad, Low-carb Caponata, Tomato & mozzarella salad and many more.
Note: Only part of the oil in included in the nutrition facts, as most is used for marinating and re-used or discarded. You can use pork, beef or even chicken. If you prefer to use pork, opt for outdoor reared pork and avoid farmed pork.
