An Easy Satay Dipping Sauce, using simple ingredients and ready in less than 5 minutes! Pour it over chicken or seafood, or beef for Satay right at home!
With all of the reviews coming in after posting the Easy Thai Satay Chicken, and questions asking what else this incredibly deliciously creamy sauce can be served with, I’ve decided to post it as a dipping sauce. THIS SAUCE. OH. EM. GEE. Good luck serving it with anything, because the most likely scenario is you — dipping your spoon in and slurping it directly out of the pan — without a chance in hell of it getting anywhere near some chicken. Or beef. Or shrimp.
Traditional and authentic satay sauce — namely Thai Satay — calls for crushing peanuts into a paste and grinding your own spices together, which is preferable if you have the time and the patience to do so. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have the patience. Or the time. Most of us NEED easy to make recipes, without needing to hit a bottle of sauce to get the flavour we want. So, even though this recipe is not an authentic, ‘real deal’ satay sauce, this is more of the rushed-parents-and-people-in-general–trying-to-get-dinner-on-the-table-with-hungry-people-breathing-down-your-neck type of sauce / situation. Better than ANY store bought sauce, and tastes EXACTLY the same (well, BETTER as I’ve been told) as take out Satay. 100,000,000% guaranteed.
And it’s a matter of throwing all of your ingredients into a medium-sized pot or saucepan, simmering it all together, and sauce is on your table in less than 10 minutes.
Use it on chicken 👇
GAH! Go make it and pour it all over everything!
