Does anyone have a tried and tested recipe for Satay please?

Here is one I have used from the brilliant Ken Hom, great with chicken especially but also good with prawns.

3 tbsp sesame paste or smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp chilli bean sauce
1 tbsp coarsely chopped garlic
2 tsp chilli oil
2 tbsp Chinese white rice vinegar or cider vinegar
2 tbsp light soy sauce
freshly ground pepper
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp hot water

You can make it less hot by obviously using less chilli. I prefer the smooth peanut butter to the sesame. Happy Satay Xmas :!: :)

OK, here's an absolutely crackin' site. It's a Chinese resaurant/supermarket where we go for our stuff and for the the occasional meal, (well nearly every week :oops: ).

Site has loads of recipes and you can ask the chef a question online and he gets back to you with the answer :D

I hope I've linked to the question where the customer asks about making Satay..........I've asked him loads of questions ... orumpage=1

Got another from a foodie mate who says it is the dogs bo**ocks of all satay sauces :!: :!:

2 onions
1-2 tablespoons of peanut oil
3oz of roasted peanuts
1/2 level teaspoon of chilli powder
1 level teaspoon of light brown sugar
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
juice of half a lime

Peel and thinly slice one onion and fry in hot peanut oil. Peel and thinly chop second onion and pound in a mortar with the peanuts and chilli powder or whizz in a liquidiser. Add the reulting paste to the pan and fry for a further 3 minutes. Gradually dilute the mixture with 1/4 pint of water and stir in the sugar. Cook for a few minutes until the sauce has the consistency of thin cream. [ Add less water if you want a thicker sauce]. Season to taste with salt, soy sauce and lime juice. Serve the sauce hot. :D
