Satay Sauce is such a versatile and healthy sauce, that can be served along any protein or used as a dip.
For so long, in the ‘health world’, fats where demonised and yes, there are still folks out there professing the fat is bad myth- yes there are of course some bad fats, but not all fats are bad, in fact a lack of good ones in our diets can be really negative for overall health.
I’m not going to get into a list of all the good and bad fats here, and how the low fat era only saw an increase of sugar, artificial sweeteners and salt in our products ( fat = flavour, so if removed from a food/product, flavour has to be replaced and this is what it’s replaced with!) as this is all about the wonderful and tasty Asian sauce of satay.
This recipe is so simple and can be whipped up in minutes. I served it with turmeric chicken skewers, stir fry veggies and a little rice, but it can be easily served along side, beef, pork, prawns, tofu or even serve with a platter of vegetable sticks as a dip for a snack or at a BBQ/dinner party. So Versatile!
NOTE: If peanuts are an issue you could use cashews/cashew butter.
