350g/12oz mozzarella balls
120ml/4fl oz extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp freshly chopped oregano
1 tsp cracked black pepper
20 small tomatoes (not cherry)
large bunch of basil
10 long skewers
Drain the mozzarella and place in a bowl. Pour over the olive oil; add the paprika, balsamic vinegar, oregano and cracked black pepper.
Leave to marinate for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight.
To assemble, take a skewer and place a tomato first, follow with a ball of the mozzarella or you could use feta cubes.
You could prepare the skewers to this stage in advance, just keep refrigerated.
Finish each one with a basil leaf. Skewer one tip of the leaf then the other tip so it looks like a little sail. Repeat until you have sufficient skewers.
