My next Thai themed guest recipe for Farmison is inspired by a lunch that was cooked for us when we went on a trek in the Khao Sok National Park. That lunch consisted of succulent pork chunks on bamboo skewers, slow roasted over a fire by our guide. I tried to remember the guide’s seasoning recipe and replicated it for these ‘jungle’ style chicken skewers. Sadly when cooking I had no open fire, but a Sainsbury’s disposable BBQ had to do.
I first ate this dish one our first night in Thailand in a restaurant called Ruen Urai. The traditional recipe calls for pomelo, a sweeter and less ascerbic version of grapefruit. However as they’re rather expensive and hard to find in the UK, I’ve substituted it with a super sweet ruby red grapefruit that works just as well. Let me know if you try this recipe out!
