Thai Pork Skewers

This savoury peanut sauce uses a bit of Thai red curry paste, which once opened, can be refrigerated for up to one year. Of course, you can omit it and still have a flavourful marinade.

Peanut Sauce: In food processor, blend peanut butter, coconut milk, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar and hot pepper sauce until smooth. Pour into bowl; cover and set aside.

Cut pork into twenty-six 3- x 1/2- x 1/4-inch (8 x 1 cm x 5 mm) strips. Set aside.

Marinade: In large bowl, whisk together sugar, coriander, lime juice, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and curry paste; add pork, tossing to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
