Put pork in a bowl and fold in golden syrup, scallions, garlic infused oil, lemongrass, cornflour, mint and coriander. Mix and season with salt and lots of black pepper.

Shape into 20 balls and put on a tray lined with greaseproof paper. Chill for 30 mins. To make the sauce, mix all the ingredients together, then set aside.

Brush the balls with olive oil and fry for 3-4 mins each side. Serve with the sauce.
