Finely grate the ginger and garlic (or use a garlic press). Thinly slice the cucumber into matchsticks. Slice the lemon (see ingredients list) into wedges. In a small bowl, combine the sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and 1/2 the mixed sesame seeds (see ingredients list). Set aside.


In a large frying pan, heat a generous drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the pork mince and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until just browned, 4-5 minutes.


Add the sweet chilli sauce mixture to the pan with the pork and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Toss to coat. Remove the pan from the heat and cover with a lid to keep warm.


In a medium bowl combine the garlic aioli with a good squeeze of lemon juice. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper, add the slaw mix and toss to coat.


Heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press or on a plate in the microwave for 10 second bursts, until warmed through.


Bring everything to the table to serve. Build your tacos by topping each tortilla with some creamy slaw, cucumber and pork mixture. Spoon over any sauce left in the pan and garnish with the crispy shallots and remaining sesame seeds. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges.
