Thai Pork Skewers

Thai Pork Skewers

These kebabs/skewers are packed full of rich umami flavour without the usual whack of chilli often found in Thai Cooking. Easy to prepare and cook, they would be a fantastic addition to a BBQ or can be grilled and served with noodles for an easy supper.

Served here with some diced chilli, tomato and lime, the skewers pair perfectly with a good squirt of Sriracha sauce!
