Spicy Pork Skewers with Grilled Pineapple-Sweet Onion Relish

This recipe is great tasting, flavorful, and has a colorful presentation. It is very easy to prepare as well.

What you’ll need for the skewers:

Center cut pork loin – cut into 1/2″-3/4″ cubes (I asked my butcher to do this) about a half pound per person

spicy yakitori sauce

ziplock bag

wooden skewers – soaked in water for about an hour prior to use

What you’ll need for the relish:

1-2 Endive

pineapple – sliced approximately 1/2″ thick or a little thinner

1/2 sweet onion – sliced same as pineapple

1 large red or orange bell pepper – quartered

juice from 1-2 limes

cilantro – chopped, to taste

coarse salt to taste, if desired

What you’ll do:

Place the cubed pork into a ziplock bag and add enough spicy yakitori sauce to coat the pork well. We marinated the pork for two whole days. After two days take the pork and place onto the pre-soaked wooden skewers and set aside. Fire up your grill on high then go in and prep your pineapple slices, sweet onion, and bell pepper. By now the grill should be getting nice and hot. Place the pineapple, sweet onion, and bell pepper on the grill for about four minutes per side, rotating once on each side at the two minute mark (to get nice grill marks). Remove from grill and dice into small bite-sized pieces and combine in a bowl. Chop some cilantro to add to the mixture then add your lime juice to taste, as well as a pinch of salt if so desired. Stir well and set aside. Take your pork skewers and grill about four minutes per side, rotating once at two minutes. Clean your endive, chop off the ends and place the leaves on the plates. Spoon in some relish into each and serve with the pork skewers. Mmmm good and it looks good too!
