These skewers are delicious done on an indoor or outdoor grill, a grill pan or under the broiler. You can substitute boneless skinless chicken breasts for the pork.

Peanut Plum Sauce:
In large shallow dish, soak 15 wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut pork across the grain into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices. In glass bowl, mix together pork, oil, garlic, coriander, turmeric, sugar, salt and cayenne; cover and let stand for 30 minutes.
Peanut Plum Sauce: Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together plum sauce, peanut butter, 1/4 cup (50 mL) water, lime juice, fish sauce, ginger and chili paste; set aside. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate pork and sauce separately for up to 24 hours.)
Thread 2 pork slices onto each skewer. Place on greased grill pan over medium-high heat or on rimmed baking sheet under broiler; grill or broil, turning once, until just a hint of pink remains inside, about 6 minutes. Serve with sauce.
