  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed and peeled
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound pork loin, boneless,  cut into 1-inch cubes

Passion Fruit Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup passion fruit nectar • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp honey
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper 


  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pineapple, peeled and cored, cut into 1-inch piece
  • 1 head butter lettuce, leaves separated 


  • Serving Size: 6
  • Cook time: 45 minutes



  1. To prepare the pork, combine the olive oil, rosemary, oregano and garlic in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate, occasionally turning the pork, for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. To prepare the glaze, process the passion fruit nectar, ketchup, lime juice, soy sauce and honey until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Blend until well-combined. Pour into a small bowl.
  3. Preheat a ridged stovetop grill pan over high heat. Remove the pork from the marinade, discarding the marinade. Thread the pork onto skewers alternately with the pineapple and red onion.
  4. Brush the skewers evenly with half of the passion fruit glaze (about 6 tablespoons). Grill until browned on all sides, 4 to 6 minutes total; don’t overcook or the pork will be tough and dry.

Serve the skewers on a bed of the lettuce leaves with some lime wedges. Brush with additional passion fruit glaze and serve the remaining sauce on the side.
