the skewer party!
There's enough food in here to feed a happy crowd - the four of us barely made a dent! And the skewering itself goes pretty quickly when you've got lots of hands on board. Between four of us, we managed to get everything skewered and ready to go in less than 10 minutes :) Mix and match your recipes and give everyone a go at grilling their own, so no-one gets stuck with the tongs all afternoon.
  • 2 packets of bamboo skewers
  • 1 recipe malaysian chicken skewers (below)
  • 1 recipe spicy lamb skewers (below)
  • 1 recipe fish & pork nem nuong (below)
  • 1-2 large tiger prawns per person
  • 1 packet of marshmallows
  • 2 pineapples
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 cucumbers
How to make it
  1. Soak two packets (at least 80) bamboo skewers in cold water for half an hour before using them.
  2. Thread the chicken, lamb and pork onto the skewers in accordance with the recipes below.
  3. Straighten each prawn out and push the skewer through the tail, along the body and into the head until each prawn has a skewer in it.
  4. Thread five marshmallows onto each skewer in an alternating pink and white pattern.
  5. Cut the pineapple into 2-3cm wedges and put them in a non-reactive bowl. Sprinkle the cayenne pepper over the top and strip the thyme leaves off the stems and into the bowl. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top of that and massage everything in.
  6. Put two skewers into each pineapple wedge so that it makes it easier to flip them later.
  7. Chop the cucumber into thick chunks and skewer five or six pieces onto each skewer.
  8. Now you've prepared everything and you're ready to grill!
