Satay Sauce

Satay sauce is the classic peanut sauce that you find in every Asian restaurant that is generally served with thin strips of chicken on skewers and is a fantastic starter or nible when you have people over. Make plenty, I have yet to meet anyone who does not like this sauce. It’s sweet, it’s savory, it’s very rich and just delicious.

What you need

1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons rice wine
1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce
3 tablespoons hot water
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter

The process

Add the oil with the garlic, and chili flakes to a pot over a medium heat and cook until the garlic is white and soft. Add the ginger and stir. allow it to cook for about another minute or so.

Add all the rest of the ingredients and stir until the sugar has melted and the sauce is a smooth fragrant paste.

here is a chicken strip recipe that goes beautifully with this sauce. The thing you really do not want to do is overcook the chicken, they take a minute or so on each side and should be succulent and juicy.

Enjoy it folks
