Pork satay skewers

Pork satay skewers | Easy Food

Makes 12 skewers

600g pork fillet, sliced into thin rectangles

For the peanut sauce:
½ a small bunch of fresh coriander
1 fresh red chilli, deseeded, stalk removed
1 small garlic clove, peeled
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
1 x 2cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
4 tbsp good-quality crunchy peanut butter
Zest and juice of 1 lime
30ml water (or coconut milk)

To serve:
Cucumber salad
Lime wedges, for squeezing

  1. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in a bowl of cold water for 30 minutes before using.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the coriander, chilli, garlic, soy sauce, fish sauce, ginger, peanut butter, lime zest and lime juice. Add the water and whizz into a smooth paste. Spoon about half of the paste into a bowl and set aside for serving.
  3. Thread the pieces of pork onto 12 skewers. Place the remaining paste from the food processor into a shallow bowl and coat the pork with it, using your hands to rub the paste into the meat. Allow the pork to marinate for 30-60 minutes.
  4. Turn the grill on to a high heat.
  5. Place the skewers on a baking tray and cook under the grill for 8-10 minutes per side until golden and completely cooked.
  6. Serve with cucumber salad, the reserved peanut butter sauce and some extra lime wedges for squeezing over.
