  • 2½ tablespoons gluten-free fish sauce
  • 2½ tablespoons lime juice

Directions:
In a large bowl, mix ground pork, chopped mint, cilantro, basil, minced shallot, hot chile, fish sauce and lime juice.

Form balls of the mixture into 2-inch ovals; place 1-2 per skewer and grill until done.

Serve.
