Cut the aubergines into squares, with the peel, and place them in a colander with a handful of coarse salt, so that they lose water. Leave them there for about 30 minutes and then rinse them thoroughly. If you prefer, you can fry them separately in plenty of peanut oil and then dry them with kitchen paper. Otherwise, place a piece of swordfish on each spit, a square of eggplant, a leaf of mint and a cherry tomato cut in half. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, grease with a little oil and cook on the grill until all the ingredients are well cooked. Serve hot.
Pear and pecorino cheese

Pork and pineapple

Now cut the pork into small pieces (a thin, whole fillet should be perfectly cut into pieces), put one piece at a time on a spit and add pineapple cut into pieces. Season the skewers with salt and a pinch of pepper, place them on a hot grill and when they are ready brush them with the sweet and sour sauce and serve.
Tomatoes, bresaola and cheese
