Pork & Pineapple Skewers
Makes 4


  1. Cut half the pineapple into 12 cubes. Roughly chop remaining pineapple and purée in a food processor or blender. In a mixing bowl, combine pork with puréed pineapple, soya sauce and ginger paste, massaging to coat evenly.
  2. Preheat barbecue to medium. Thread pork onto bamboo skewers alternating with pineapple, onion and bacon, making 4 skewers.
  3. Season skewers with salt and pepper and grill with lid closed, turning every 4 to 5 min., until pork is cooked through, 15 to 17 min.

Tip: Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 min. before threading on pork, bacon, pineapple and onion.
