|Ground buffalo skewers with ginger and orange.|
|Ginger, garlic, panko breadcrumbs, clementines and onion.|
|Garlic, orange zest and ginger.|
|Chopped yellow onion.|
The skewers were soaked for 30 minutes.
Time to assemble.
|Pieces of red bell pepper.|
|I left the ginger and onion in fairly big chunks because I like the burst of flavor from the onion and the crunch from the ginger. Chop them fine if you prefer.|
While they were cooking away I made a glaze to spoon over the skewers.
|Clementines, honey and rice vinegar.|
It turned out more to be a basting liquid, but I was OK with that. It ended up having a nice sweet and sour flavor.
After 10 minutes, I basted the skewers with the liquid - turned them and basted the other side.
They went back under the broiler for another 8 minutes.
They came out just right.
The basting liquid added a wonderful sweet and sour taste. The onions added succulent slightly sweet flavor and every once in a while I would bite into a bit of ginger and get a burst of mild, clean spice.
Pretty close to perfect in my opinion.
I am going to ignore the kitchen for the rest of the night :-)
