  • 12 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 100g/4oz butter, softened

  • Soak 12 bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent

    adding a bay leaf to each skewer.
  • To make the sauce, beat together the ginger, lime juice, basil and butter
    with a little seasoning until well combined.
  • Cook the kebabs under a medium grill or on a barbecue for
    8–10 minutes, turning occasionally, until evenly cooked and lightly
    browned on all sides.
  • Meanwhile, boil the wine until it is reduced to 2 tablespoons. Remove
    from the heat, and gradually whisk into the sauce. Serve the hot kebabs
    with the sauce.
