Vietnamese Shrimp Pops with Peanut Sauce
I have no idea why pork is not mentioned in the title. These are small pork burgers with shrimp in them, grilled on a skewer hence the recipe creator called them pops.
My husband found this recipe online here: Vietnamese Shrimp Pops with Peanut Sauce.
The sauce tasted to me like the sauce on Cold Sesame Noodles from the Chinese take-out restaurant.
My husband and I agreed the recipe is a keeper. These are delicious and a nice change to regular old hamburgers or turkey burgers on the grill. Next time we intend to make them larger but to be careful to cook well-done throughout (for health safety reasons) and we'll leave them off the stick.
The recipe appears in Weber Grill's newest grilling cookbook: Weber's Way to Grill by Jamie Purviance which I'll be buying as a belated Father's Day gift for my husband, the Weber charcoal grill lover. (Hey the marketing idea worked, putting a free recipe online made my husband find it which led to me realizing a new cookbook was published and led to me buying it!)
