Prep time: 1 hr 30 mins


Cherry & Dill Sauce



To make the skewers, place all the ingredients (except the pork) in a blender and blitz to form a paste. Spread over the pork and leave to marinate for an hour or so. Thread onto skewers

To make the sauce, place all the ingredients (except the dill) in a saucepan with 200ml water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 30–40 minutes until it’s starting to look thick and syrupy. Whizz in a blender until smooth, then pass through a sieve to remove any stray pits or skins

Stir in the chopped dill and check the seasoning – the sauce should be both sweet and sour. If it tastes flat, add more lemon juice

Cook the skewers either under a grill for 15–20 minutes (turning regularly) or over direct heat on a barbecue
