Orange & Onion Relish

A simple zingy relish, ideally suited to cut through the fattiness of pulled pork, while adding some crunchy texture.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Marinade 12 hours
Servings 4 people


  • 2 large red onions
  • 5 limes
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 tsp Maldon salt
  • 2 red chillis fresh


  1. Take two large red onions and slice finely.  

  2. Place the onion in a bowl and cover with boiling water. 

  3. Allow to steep for one minute and then drain. 

  4. Add the juice of five limes (one cup of lime juice), the juice of two oranges and 1 tsp Maldon salt. At this point you could add a very finely chopped fresh red chilli. 

  5. Mix thoroughly and place in a lidded container in the fridge overnight.
