Ingredients

Lean pork mince

400 g

Fresh ginger

2 tsp, finely grated

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Green shallot(s)

1 individual, finely chopped

Lime(s)

1 medium, cut into wedges

Sesame oil

1 tbs

Rice wine vinegar

Soy sauce

1 tbs

Honey

1 tsp

Bok choy

1 bunch(es), baby, thinly sliced

Red apple, unpeeled

1 medium, thinly sliced

Sesame seeds

2 tsp, toasted

Instructions

  1. Combine pork, ginger, garlic and shallot in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Shape mixture into 16 meatballs. Thread meatballs onto 4 wooden skewers (see note). Thread 1 lime wedge onto the end of each skewer.
  2. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook skewers, turning, for 6–8 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, combine vinegar, soy sauce, honey and remaining oil in a large bowl. Add bok choy and apple and gently toss to combine. Sprinkle skewers with sesame seeds and serve with salad.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Jasmine rice. TIPS: Soak skewers in cold water for 10 minutes before using to stop them burning during cooking. To toast sesame seeds, toss them in a small non-stick frying pan over high heat until golden.
