- Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C fan / Gas 4.
- Place the porc mince in a large mixing bowl.
- Prepare the ingredients: remove the root and slice the spring onion into circles; crush the garlic; chop the coriander; zest the lime; cut the lime in half and juice.
- Add all the prepared ingredients to the bowl with the porc mince and stir well.
- Divide the meat mixture into 12 equal balls. Flatten slightly and place them on a baking tray.
- Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
- Make the dipping sauce: pour the soy sauce into a small mixing bowl, add the honey and sweet chilli sauce then stir well.
- Serve the bites on their own with the dipping sauce as a light snack, or make them into a main meal by serving with noodles and stir-fried vegetables or adding new potatoes, baby corn, sugar snap peas and Tenderstem broccoli.
- If you’ve enjoyed these, next time try experimenting by adding some grated apple or chopped pineapple for extra texture and a fruity flavour. Or instead of ginger and lime juice, why not try cinnamon and orange juice?
