    3. Grill skewers and lemon halves for 2 minutes. Remove lemon halves once grill marks form. Turn skewers and grill 2 minutes more or until desired doneness.
    4. Garnish skewers with oregano, if desired, and serve immediately with 3 lemon halves on the side for squeezing over skewers. Slice remaining lemon half and serve with skewers.
