Ginger Sesame Turkey Heart Skewers

Here's something strangely delicious to try out.
Go out and buy a bunch of chicken or turkey hearts, marinate them in some leftover Nuoc Mam Cham dipping sauce (or specially make a batch), add some sesame oil, and sesame seeds,
skewer them with cherry tomatoes, onions, and bell peppers,
and grill them alongside some corn on the cob on your BBQ.
It takes about 15 minutes on the grill, depending on the size of the hearts to get that grilled goodness on the hearts.
Have them with some hoisin dipping sauce and call it your own invention!
That's what I did anyway...

If the idea of eating hearts makes you somewhat squeamish, the real star in this is the marinade.
Nuoc Mam Cham Marinade
3 Tbsp nuoc nam (fish sauce)
4 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp shao xing
2 cloves garlic, grated
juice from 1 lemon
1 thai chili, chopped
1/2 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 tsp chopped fresh lemongrass
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp sesame seeds

Think outside of the sausages and burgers...
