Make the dipping sauce by mixing everything together adding more of less of each to your taste.

In a bowl mix together the minced pork, grated ginger, garlic, egg yolk and a little salt and pepper. Form into 24 small balls and chill in the fridge for about 1 hour to firm up.

Thread 3 balls onto 8 short skewers  and brush with the oil. Heat a grill to high and cook the skewers for about 5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Serve with the dipping sauce.
