  1. Soak 8 wooden skewers in cold water for 20 mins or use metal skewers. Scrape the pulp from 4 of the passion fruits into a medium saucepan with the sugar, soy, chilli, star anise and 50ml water. Stir over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 mins, stirring often.
  2. Preheat the grill to high and line a baking tray with foil. Quarter the pork fillet lengthways, then cut into 32 even-sized chunks. Thread the pork onto the soaked skewers and arrange on the foil-lined baking tray.
  3. Spoon the passion fruit mixture over the pork and grill for 10-15 mins, turning occasionally and basting with the passion fruit glaze from the tray, until the pork is cooked through with no pink meat showing.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the rice following pack instructions and steam the pak choi for 5-6 mins until just tender. Serve the pork drizzled with the remaining passion fruit pulp and seeds, alongside the rice, pak choi and any remaining glaze from the tray.
