SW recipe: Thai turkey and lemon grass skewers

Makes 16 skewers
Ready in 20 minutes, plus cooling and chilling

Ingredients
4 garlic cloves

4 lemon grass stalks, outer leaves discarded, very thinly sliced

1 kaffir lime leaf, stem discarded and leaf finely shredded (optional)

3cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and thinly sliced

1 medium-hot red chilli, deseeded, plus extra finely chopped chilli to serve

Low-calorie cooking spray

6 spring onions, finely chopped

500g lean turkey mince (5% fat or less)

2 tsp Thai fish sauce (nam pla)

1 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander, plus 2 tbsp to serve

2 tbsp chopped fresh basil

For the coriander yogurt sauce

100g fat-free natural Greek yogurt

1 garlic clove, crushed

Small pack fresh coriander

Method
First put all the coriander yogurt sauce ingredients into a food processor with a large pinch of salt and purée until smooth. Spoon into a small serving bowl and chill for 1 hour. Put the garlic, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaf (if using), ginger, chilli and 2 tbsp water into a small food processor and blend to a smooth paste. Spray a small non-stick pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the paste and cook for 2 minutes. Add the spring onions and another 1 tbsp water and cook for 2 minutes more, stirring now and then. Tip it all into a mixing bowl and leave to cool.
Add the turkey mince to the paste along with the Thai fish sauce, lime juice, coriander, basil and ½ tsp salt. Mix everything together well with your hands (or a spoon if you don’t want to get your hands mucky). Divide the mixture into 32 pieces and roll each one into a small ball. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with a little low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the turkey balls and fry gently for 5 minutes or until golden brown all over and cooked through. Thread 16 wooden skewers with 2 balls each and scatter over the extra chilli and most of the extra coriander. Sprinkle the rest of the coriander over the yogurt sauce and serve with the skewers.
