Instructions

  1. Make the marinade: combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Season to taste and add the pork. Stir to coat, cover, then marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. If using bamboo skewers, put them in a bowl of water to soak for at least 10 minutes
  2. Bring the pork to room temperature, then thread onto 8 skewers, alternating with the onion wedges. Reserve the marinade.
  3. Season the skewers to taste and cook on a hot barbecue or griddle pan for 8-10 minutes, turning frequently and brushing with the reserved marinade. Remove from the heat and rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the buttermilk slaw. Put all the vegetables in a serving bowl. Mix the buttermilk, mayonnaise and cider vinegar together in a small jug and stir through the vegetables.
  5. Serve the skewers on the slaw, garnished with chopped parsley.
