How To Prepare Jerk-ish Pork Skewers ?


Preparation time: 25 mins

Cooking time: 15 mins

Serving: 4


  • 500g pork mince (at least 10% fat)
  • 2 tsp allspice berries, ground using a pestle and mortar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp thyme leaves
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 lime, zested and cut into quarters
  • 2 tsp molasses or honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Rice salad, to serve (optional)
  • 8 wooden skewers, soaked in water for at least 2 hrs


  1. Put the pork mince in a bowl and use your hands to mix in the allspice, cinnamon, thyme, spring onions, garlic, lime zest and molasses or honey. Drizzle the olive oil over a large plate.
  2. Divide the mince mixture into eight portions and roll into even- sized balls. Working with one ball at a time and using wet hands, press the ball onto a skewer, forming it into a sausage shape around the skewer as you go. Transfer the finished skewers to the oiled plate and keep chilled until needed. Will keep covered in the fridge for up to a day.
  3. Light the barbecue. When the coals are ashen, place the skewers on the grill and cook, undisturbed, for 2 mins. Carefully turn using tongs and cook for another 5 mins before turning again. Repeat this process once more until the skewers are cooked through and browned.
  4. Remove to a serving platter, squeeze over the lime wedges and season. Serve with a rice salad, if you like (ours was a mixture of cooked rice, sweetcorn, red onion and herbs).
