3 pounds of kid goat, cut into 1-inch cubes

Salt and pepper

1 cup of olive oil

Pinch of crushed red pepper

2 tablespoons of chopped garlic

4 bay leaves, crumbled

12 green bay laurel sticks, about 12 inches long

1 loaf of crusty bread

1 pound fresh figs

1 pound Queijo da Serra Estrela cheese


  1. Preheat the grill. Season the goat with salt and pepper. In a mixing bowl, whisk the olive oil, red pepper, garlic and bay leaves together. Season with salt and pepper. Toss the goat with the marinade, cover and refrigerate overnight. Spear 4 ounces of the goat meat on each laurel stick. Place the reserved marinade in a saucepan and bring up to a boil. Boil the marinade for about 2 minutes and remove from the heat. Place the sticks on the grill and grill for 2 to 3 minutes on all sides. Baste the skewers with the marinade every few minutes. Remove the skewers from the grill and place on a large platter. Slice the bread into 1-inch slices and place on the platter. Arrange the figs and cheese around the skewers and bread.
