1/4 cup olive oil
3 tbs. freshly grated horseradish or prepared hot horseradish sauce
2 tbs. rosemary needles or 1 tsp. dried
1 1/2 tbs. red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar

2 tbs. port
1 cup creme fraiche of sour cream
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard

Heat a grill or griddle and cook the skewers for 2 minutes per side for rare, then remove to a plate. Serve with the horseradish dip.
