    Heat an oiled grill pan (or grill or barbecue) over medium heat; cook skewers, turning occasionally, for 6 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with crushed beans, sprinkle with parsley, accompany with wedges.

Notes

If cooking the skewers in a grill pan it is not necessary to soak them first. However, if you are barbecuing on a grill with a live flame, you will need to soak them to stop them from scorching or burning while cooking. Place skewers in a tall jug, fill with boiling water from the kettle and soak for 5 minutes; drain.
