Our family loves dishes with peanut satay sauce. When we go to Asian restaurants we are always looking for any satay menu options. However, we find it is so ‘hit and miss’ as to what type of satay you will get. Some restaurants ramp up the spiciness at the expense of the peanut flavour. Some have a very thin satay sauce. I admit we are very ‘picky and critical’ when it comes to our satay sauces. Our preference is a satay that is lower on the spicy scale but far richer on the peanut (butter) taste scale.
This satay sauce provides a light spicy tang, but a wonderful thick sauce with a strong peanut flavour. The onion and crunchy peanut butter, mixed through, adds to the rich texture of this sauce.
You can ‘amp up’ the spiciness, to your preference, by simply adding extra ground chilli. This sauce is also fantastic for a range of other dishes such as chicken kebabs.
However, as is, it is a wonderful dipping sauce to accompany roti, and makes a perfect appetiser to any meal.
So if you prefer a strong peanut flavour to your satay, then you should definitely try this recipe. This satay sauce is very quick and easy to make.
