Recipe highlights Serves: 4

  • Best served immediately
  • Dairy free
  • Egg free
  • Nut free
  • Low salt

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons salt-reduced soy sauce
    2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
    1 teaspoon sweet chilli sauce
    1/2 teaspoon canola or olive oil
    450 g lean pork fillets, cut into 2cm cubes
    1 red capsicum, cut in half, seeds removed
    1 green capsicum, cut in half, seeds removed
    8 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

Cooking method

    1. Mix the soy sauce, ginger, chilli sauce and oil together. Add the pork, cover and marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
    2. Cut the capsicums into triangles and thread them onto the skewers alternately with the pork.
    3. Cook on a hot barbecue or under a hot grill, basting once with any remaining sauce. (Take care not to overcook - pork cooks very quickly and needs to be juicy inside to taste best.)

Notes: For a vegetarian alternative, replace the pork with 500g firm tofu or tempeh.
