Shape each portion into an 8cm long thick sausage. Thread onto 12 skewers, firmly shaping to secure. Preheat a large chargrill pan over a low heat. Chargrill skewers, turning occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes or until browned and cooked through.

Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water. Bring to the boil. Boil for 8 to 10 minutes or until just tender. Drain. Stand for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Cut into quarters. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl. Add 1/2 the peanuts and green onion. Toss to combine. Set aside.

Heat coconut cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in lemon juice, fish sauce and sugar. Reduce heat to low. Bring to a simmer. Simmer gently, stirring, for 2 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining peanuts.

Whisk lime rind, lime juice and oil in a small bowl. Drizzle over potatoes. Add coriander. Toss gently to combine. Serve skewers with chili, coconut sauce and potato salad.
