Watermelon with sticky pork and prawn relish

Perfect entree for dinner parties

I’ve made this for my Christmas potluck party. It is perfect as you can make the relish first and refill more if you need to. Just make sure that you have enough watermelon. Are you ready? Here goes:


Makes 4

125g (4oz) pork mince

2 green prawns, shelled, cleaned and diced

2 kaffir lime leaves, shredded

1cm (1/4in) lemongrass, sliced

1 handful coriander leaves,chopped

1 small shallot, diced

chilli powder, to taste

2 teaspoons sweet fish sauce

1 teaspoon lime juice

4 watermelon squares

1 pinch pork floss


  1. Cook the mince and prawns in a large wok or frypan,then set aside to cool.
  2. When the meat is cold, add the kaffir lime,lemongrass,coriander,shallots and the chilli powder.
  3. Spoon in a little sweet fish sauce and the lime juice and mix well.
  4. Cut watermelon into squares.
  5. Top each piece of watermelon with a mound of the relish.
  6. Garnish with a little pork floss.

My tips

Although the recipe said it’s sticky pork but in fact it’s not. I find it useful if use a little of corn flour in the pork mince to stick it. This is then easier to plate up on top of the watermelon.

Have fun! Let me know if your guests are impressed! (leave me a comment ok?!)
