Salmon and shrimp sheftalies

Mix all ingredients for tabbouli in a bowl and keep to one side so flavours can combine.
Prepare the sheftalies: wash and soak the casing in a mixture of water and lemon juice or vinegar. Put all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Drain the casing and spread out. Form the mixture into 8 evenly shaped sheftalies and wrap with casing. You can skewer them two at a time lengthwise. Warm a griddle pan, brush lightly with a little olive oil and grill the sheftalies for 3-4 minutes, turning carefully to ensure they brown nicely all over.
Divide the tabbouli between 4 bowls, add the sheftalies, the tahini and the warm pitta, and garnish – if desired – with sautéed cherry tomatoes and spring onion.
