SPICY PORK SKEWERS

1 - 1/4 pounds ground pork
1 - 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground paprika
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 - 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Soak 8 bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes (if using metal skewers, proceed to step 2). drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together the pork, garlic, cumin, paprika, onion, salt and pepper. Form into small meatballs, each about the size of a golf ball, then thread the meat onto the skewers.

Lay skewers over medium coals or medium heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 4 to 5 seconds); close lid on gas grill. Cook, turning once, until browned on both sides and no longer pink in the center, about 8 minutes. Serve warm.
