Instructions
  1. In a blender, combine the soy sauce, honey, oil, lime zest, lime juice, garlic, ginger, Sriracha and salt. Blend until completely smooth. Pour 1/2 cup of the marinade into a small bowl; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve (this will be your sauce).
  2. Combine the chicken and remaining marinade in a large Ziplock bag and seal tightly. Place in a bowl (in case of leakage) and marinate in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and thread onto skewers, folding the pieces in half if they are long and thin.
  4. Be sure the grill is clean, then preheat to medium-high heat. To grease the grill, lightly dip a wad of paper towels in vegetable oil and, using tongs, carefully rub over the grates several times until glossy and coated. Grill the chicken kebabs, covered, until golden brown and cooked through, turning skewers occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes. (Keep an eye on it - if they are browning too quickly, turn the heat down.)
  5. Transfer the skewers to a platter. Warm up the reserved marinade in the microwave and either drizzle it over top or place it alongside. Scatter the chopped coriander over top and garnish the platter with lime wedges and coriander sprigs.

Instructions
  1. For the croquette filling, pour the chicken stock into a small saucepan and season with salt. Add the chicken thighs, bring to a simmer and poach for 12–14 minutes until the chicken is just cooked. Leave to cool in the liquid. Once cool, remove the chicken and chop into small pieces. Reserve the stock for the béchamel
  2. Make a roux with the butter and flour, stirring all the time, and gradually add the stock until a thick béchamel is achieved. Add the Parmesan, anchovies and garlic, then transfer to a blender and blitz until smooth. Fold through the parsley and chopped chicken and season to taste with salt
  3. Transfer the mix to a tray and place in the fridge until set and firm. When the mixture is set, divide into 12 balls and retain in the fridge
  4. To make the Caesar dressing, blend the egg, vinegar and the mustard until smooth. Add the anchovy, then slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream while whisking, as if you were making a mayonnaise
  5. Once emulsified add the finely grated Parmesan, Worcestershire sauce and adjust the consistency with a touch of warm water and lemon juice. The dressing should be a little loose
  6. Prepare three bowls for crumbing: one with flour, one with egg wash and one with breadcrumbs. Roll the croquettes through each bowl, ensuring that the croquettes are completely covered in the breadcrumbs. Store in a tray of breadcrumbs until needed
  7. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil and blanch the lettuce and spinach for 2 minutes. Drain well and squeeze out any excess water before transferring to a blender. Blitz until smooth and pass through a fine sieve. Chill in a bowl over ice until needed
  8. Preheat the vegetable oil in a deep saucepan or deep fryer to 180°C
  9. Once the oil is up to temperature, fry the croquettes for 2–3 minutes until golden
  10. To serve, swirl the lettuce purée around the bottom of the plate, add 3 croquettes per portion and a dot of Caesar dressing. Garnish with lettuce leaves, shaved Parmesan, cress and anchovies
