Looking for something different at one of our recent barbecues we tried making a satay sauce recipe, and I am pleased to say after much tasting and tweaking it worked.
Satay sauce ingredients:
- Sugar free peanut butter – 2 heaped tbsp
- Finely chopped fresh ginger – inch
- Coconut milk – 200ml
- Juice of a fresh lime
- 1/2 tsp chili flakes (optional)
Satay sauce recipe:
In a small (non stick pan), add the Sugar free peanut butter and coconut milk, over a low heat gently melt and combine the ingredients.
Once mixed to a paste add fresh ginger and chilli flakes, stir to combine and heat through.
Take off the heat and add the juice of 1 lime, stir to combine. Taste the mixture for seasoning and where required add extra lime/ginger etc.
We used the satay sauce recipe on some chicken drumsticks and also kept some sauce back for dipping. It also works really well with small pieces of chicken covered with the sauce on kebab sticks, which once cooked make it really easy to dunk them in extra satay sauce once cooked.
