1 tablespoon olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon extra

500g pork mince

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes

4 garlic cloves, finely grated

juice of ½ lemon

pinch of salt

2 bunches of asparagus, ends trimmed

For the pickled onion:

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

½ cup water

½ cup apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons caster sugar

1 teaspoon fennel seeds

  • Place onion in a medium bowl. Combine water, apple cider vinegar, sugar, fennel seeds and a good pinch of salt in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil, then pour over onion. Set aside to cool.
  • Heat one tablespoon oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook pork mince, breaking up lumps with a wooden spoon, for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Add oregano, chilli flakes and garlic. Cook for a further minute or until fragrant. Transfer mince to a medium bowl, squeeze over lemon juice and season with salt.
  • Return pan to the heat with remaining one tablespoon oil. Cook asparagus and sugar snap peas for 2-3 minutes or until tender and lightly coloured.
