With spring here, we’re increasingly looking for new recipes that give us reason to fire up the grill. What better reason to start up the fire than with this easy Satay recipe.
Satay is a popular Indonesian dish that consists of marinated sliced meat served with a side of peanut sauce. Some historians say that Javanese street vendors introduced it in the early 19th century, while others claim that the dish’s origins can be traced back to the Arabs who skewered their meat on swords.
Nowadays, the dish has become widespread throughout Asia and has become a mainstay in Singaporean, Malaysian, Thai and Filipino cuisines. Turmeric is often used to marinate the meat, which can range from chicken to even snake.
Since this recipe doesn’t call for snake, it can be a great way to introduce Indonesian cuisine to those who are weary of trying new things.
