Ingredients

1 1/2 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed   3/4 lime
4 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped   8 g
2 1/4 tsp brown sugar   9 g
2 tsp olive oil   10 mL
1/2 tbsp curry powder   5 g
1/2 tsp lemon zest, grated   1/4 lemon
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
1 pork tenderloin, cut into 2 cm cubes   300 g
1 1/2 green peppers, or red   220 g

Before you start

Soak the wooden skewers for about 15 min before use to prevent them from burning while on the grill.

Method

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the first 6 ingredients with salt and pepper to taste. Add the pork and toss well, ensuring that the pork is coated evenly. Cover and marinate for 30 min at room temperature or refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the peppers into the same size as the pork. Alternately thread pork and pepper chunks onto each skewers. Set aside the remaining marinade.
  3. Cook the skewers on a medium-hot grill or under the broiler for about 10-15 min, turning them occasionally and basting with reserved marinade, until golden-brown and thoroughly cooked. Serve.
