I have only recently been introduced to satay sauce.
I have no idea why it took so long either.
When I made spring rolls yesterday, I knew I had to dip them in satay sauce. But I didn't want to use the bottled stuff - I wanted to give it a go.
I started google-ing recipes (what is the correct way to write 'google-ing'? Anybody know?) and didn't find any that worked for me (meaning: I didn't have any coconut oil and a whole lot of em called for it). So I pulled stuff out of my cupboards and threw one together.
Like the non-traditional salad rolls, this satay sauce isn't like one you'll find in a restaurant, but it was really good. It went with the salad rolls really well and I think it would be awesome on chicken or beef too. If some makes it past another session of salad rolls, I'll let you know if it works :)
1 tbsp sambal (Indonesian sweet chili sauce)
80g peanut butter
1/2 tsp malt vinegar
juice of one lemon
2 tbsp grated ginger
1 tsp sherry
1/2 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
Note: That sambal is seriously good stuff.
Note: I used crunchy peanut butter
Note: I miss Kraft crunchy peanut butter
Throw everything into a pot and warm until its a homogeneous mixture and the sugar is all dissolved.
Adjust to taste (I may have added more ginger and sesame oil) and enjoy!
It was really good with my salad rolls!
