- Heat a saute pan with a little high-heat oil, add pork mince, shallots and chopped roast garlic. Fry until pork is coloured.
- Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil. With a 40mm cookie cutter, stamp out tubes of pumpkin and slice thinly on a mandolin. Blanch in the water until pumpkin is just limp, about one to two minutes.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk water, lime juice, fish sauce, sugar and red chilli. Whisk in oil. Lay pumpkin in a round plate, overlapping each piece. Scatter over the hot pork and capers. Dress with the chilli lime vinaigrette, scatter over the micro coriander and serve.
