  • Step 1

    Start by preparing your vegetables. In a shallow bowl combine your salt, sugar, vinegars, and warm water. Whisk together until dissolved, then add your thinly sliced vegetables. Toss to combine, and leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours

  • Step 2

    Once it’s pickled to your liking, drain the liquid to stop the pickling process

  • Step 3

    Next, make your mayo. You don’t have to make this in advance, but it gives the flavours a chance to mingle. In a measuring jug add your egg yolk, vinegar, lemon juice, soy sauce, wasabi paste, and miso paste

  • Step 4

    Using a hand blender, blend everything together before slowly drizzling in your oil. Keep adding the oil until everything emulsifies. Taste, and adjust any flavours to your preference. Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve

  • Step 5

    Next, prepare your tare. Add all the ingredients to a saucepan. Leave to cook on a medium/low heat until it’s reduced by half – it will thicken as it cools. Remove the aromatics, and divide the sauce into 2

  • Step 6

    Trim off any excess fat from your chicken thighs, and dice into roughly 2-inch pieces. Carefully slide onto your skewers, alternating between chicken and spring onion. Spray lightly with cooking oil

  • Step 7

    Using your Ninja Foodi MAX Health Grill & Air Fryer AG551UK, grill your skewers on high for 4 minutes. Flip, then cook for another 4 minutes before brushing liberally with your glaze. Cook for a final 2 minutes, or until your nicely browned and coated with the glaze

  • Step 8

    Serve the skewers with your warm flatbreads, a good helping of your pickled vegetables, your mayonnaise, and the leftover tare glaze. Enjoy!
