INDONESIAN SATAY

This is a traditional Indonesian satay, lightened up a bit on the fat and sugar content. This dish could be served as an appetizer or a protein for a main meal. The sauce is rather addicting😋

Equipment

  • medium nonstick skillet, grill or grill pan
  • skewers to grill chicken/shrimp

Ingredients
  

  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce low sodium
  • 3 Tablespoons tomato sauce low sodium
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut oil
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled and minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 6 chicken breasts boneless, skinless, cubed (or fresh shrimp peeled, or both!)
  • Nonstick cooking spray

For the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 garlic clove peeled and minced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter no sugar added
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce low sodium
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Optional garnish: 2–3 tablespoons fresh chives

Instructions
 

  • In a medium bowl, mix soy sauce, tomato sauce, peanut oil, garlic, pepper, and cumin. Place prepared chicken (or shrimp; if using both, use a separate bowl and divide the marinade in half) into the mixture. Stir to coat all pieces. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, but about an hour is plenty.
  • Preheat the grill to high heat.
  • ​While the grill is preheating, prepare the sauce. Spray a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and garlic and sauté until lightly browned about 5–6 minutes. Add the water, peanut butter, and a tablespoon of soy sauce and mix well. Cook and stir until well-blended, about 2–3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and mix in the lemon juice. Pour into a serving bowl for dipping and set aside.
  • ​Thread chicken/shrimp onto skewers and discard the marinade. Grill skewers for about 5 minutes per side until chicken/shrimp is cooked through.
  • Place on a serving platter or separate plates and serve with peanut sauce.
