For the marinade
For the salad
- STEP 1
Make marinade by mixing ingredients together. Put chops in a shallow bowl or tray, pour marinade over, turning chops to make sure they are coated all over, and leave to stand for at least 30 mins.
- STEP 2
To make salad, put the fish sauce, lime juice and 1 tbsp water into a small bowl, add the sugar, then mix until dissolved. Stir in shallot and chilli. Put cucumber in a serving dish, sprinkle mint over, pour dressing over and scatter with peanuts.
- STEP 3
Heat the barbecue or griddle pan and cook chops on each side for 4-5 mins, until cooked. Serve with cucumber salad.
If it’s not barbecue weather these chops can be cooked on a griddle pan and finished in a medium oven, if the griddle pan isn’t big enough to cook them all at once.
