Give Your Braai A Taiwanese Twist With These Chicken Heart Skewers
“My family, and most East Asian families I know, always braai in a way that we eat the food as soon as it comes off the fire – there’s no waiting until it’s all done and no ‘resting’ of the meat. So we’ll snack on chicken-heart skewers while braaiing the next item. Chicken heart is my favourite kind of offal – I enjoy the unique texture and flavour. They’re tender and chewy, not far off from red meat,” says Ming-Cheau Lin.
Tip: Marinate the meat the night before, if possible, for the best flavour.
