These succulent skewers are ideal for the barbie, so once the sun shines get cooking!
How To Make Jerk Pork & Shallot Skewers with Pineapple Salsa:
Preparation time: 30 minutes, plus 30-60 minutes marinating
Cooking time: 20 minutes
- 650g pork steaks, cut into 2.5cm cubes (leg or shoulder)
- 12 shallots, peeled and cut in half
- 3 tbsp Bart Spices jerk rub
- 3 tbsp olive oil.
- 8 wooden kebab skewers, soaked in water for an hour to prevent burning
- ½ fresh pineapple, chopped into 1cm cubes
- 3 shallots, finely chopped
- A handful of coriander leaves, roughly chopped
- Juice & zest of 1 lime
- 3 red chillis, deseeded and chopped
What To Do:
1. Make a paste with the jerk rub by mixing it with the olive oil. Add the jerk paste to the cubed pork and shallots and mix thoroughly. Leave to marinate for a minimum of half an hour – an hour would be better if you had time.
2. Whilst the pork and shallots are marinating make the pineapple salsa by combining all the ingredients in a bowl. Leave to rest at room temperature to allow the flavours to develop.
3. When the marinating is finished, thread the shallots and pork alternately onto the skewers. Cook the skewers on a BBQ or grill pan on a high heat for a couple of minutes on each side until they are nicely coloured. Move to a cooler part of the BBQ or turn the heat on the grill down and cook for further 10-15 minutes, turning regularly until the pork is cooked and the shallots are tender.
4. Serve with the pineapple salsa.
