Cooking time:
        10 - 15 mins
Serves:                    4

What you need

500g John Penny minced pork
2 large shallots, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp finely chopped lemon grass
1 1/2 tsp cornflour
2 tbsp finely chopped mint and coriander
4 tbsp fish sauce
4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce, plus extra for dipping
4 spring onions, sliced
1 red chilli, deseeded, finely sliced
2 tbsp coriander leaves

How to cook

In a large bowl, mix the pork, shallots, garlic, lemon grass, cornflour, herbs and fish sauce. Shape into approx 18-20 balls.

Thread onto large metal skewers (or individual wooden ones, soaked in water for 20 minutes to avoid burning). Barbecue or grill for 5-6 minutes, turning now and again until they are just cooked through.

Brush with 2 tbsp of the chilli sauce and cook for a couple of minutes more until lightly caramelised.

Remove the skewers and serve spoon over with a little more chilli sauce, plus extra for dipping, and scattered with the spring onion, chilli and coriander.
