Mango and Pork Skewers

Author: Canadian Living

Fresh, colourful skewers partner well with rice or noodles for dinner. Or serve as an appetizer by passing them on a large platter. Look for firm mangoes because they will soften with grilling.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork loin centre chops about 1/2 inch thick (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 4 green onions
  • 2 mangoes (about 2 lb/1 kg total)
  • 2 sweet red peppers
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
Glaze:
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime rind
  • 1 tablespoon minced gingerroot
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Glaze: In bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, lime rind, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper; divide in half and set aside.

Cut pork into generous 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Cut green onions into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Starting with onions, alternately thread onions and pork onto 8 metal or soaked wooden skewers. Set aside.

Pit and cut mangoes into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. Seed, core and cut each red pepper into 12 triangles about size of mango cubes. Alternately thread mangoes and red peppers onto 8 skewers. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate all skewers for up to 2 hours.)

In bowl, combine oil, salt and pepper; brush over mango skewers then pork skewers.

Place pork skewers on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill for 4 minutes; turn skewers. Add mango skewers; close lid and grill, turning once, for 4 minutes. Brush all skewers with half of the glaze.

Grill until skewers are lightly browned and just a hint of pink remains inside pork, about 2 minutes. Drizzle with remaining half of glaze. Sprinkle with parsley.
