BBQ Thai Meatball Skewers

(Serves 4)

11 oz beef mince
3 shallots, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 inch piece fresh ginger, grated
1 tbsp green peppercorns, crushed
2 tsp fish sauce
2 tsp brown sugar
Lime wedges
Wooden skewers

Soak the wooden skewers in water to prevent them burning.

Chop the beef mince with a large knife to make sure the mince is very fine. Add the ginger, garlic, shallots, peppercorns, fish sauce and brown sugar and combine with your hands. Form the mixture into balls using about 2 tsp of mixture at a time. Put three balls on each skewer.

Heat up your BBQ grill and oil lightly. Cook the meat for about 7 to 8 minutes or until the meet is cooked through.

Serve with the lime wedges.
