For Aji Marinade

In a large bowl, combine the aji panca paste, soy sauce, ground cumin, ground oregano, oil, garlic, vinegar and whisk to form a marinade. Set aside.

Heat indoor or outdoor grill to medium high heat, about 450 degrees. Thread the cubes of pork evenly on skewers, along with the onions and peppers. Place skewers on the grill, brush on the aji panca marinade and cook until marinade has caramelized, approximately 10-15 minutes.

Garnish pork skewers with chives, olive oil, key limes and cilantro.
