Grilled Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

Satay is famous among Asian countries, especially in Southeast Asia. Wikipedia said it may originate in Java, Indonesia. It's very easy and simple recipes, consisting cubed beef on bamboo skewers. There's various type of sauce to serve satay with. Some people use black soy sauce, sliver of onion and chili (Asian love chili very much). But my favorite is peanut sauce. Here's the complete recipe.

INGREDIENTS

satay :
1 pound boneless chicken, cubed.
bamboo skewers

season sauce :
4 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
3 tablespoon peanut paste
2 tablespoon oil
bamboo skewers

peanut paste :
1/2 pound dry roasted peanut (unsalted)
500 ml coconut milk
salt

peanut sauce :
peanut paste
6 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
a cup red onion
chili powder

DIRECTIONS

Blend all peanut paste ingredients on blender together. Put four cubed chicken on each skewers. In a small bowl, stir together sweet soy sauce, peanut paste and oil to make season sauce.

Preheat the grill for medium heat.

Grill the chicken satay for about 5 minutes each side(medium done). Remove from the grill and dipped in season sauce. Grill again until completely done.

To make peanut sauce, blend all peanut sauce ingredients and cook over low heat for about ten minutes (stir constantly). Serve hot with grilled satay.

Grilled Banana with chocolate sauce and vannila ice cream

On Friday night when I review my blog, I’ve just realize that I’ve never posted any desert recipes before. So far I just concentrate on main course recipes. But now, I’ll try to start posting desert recipes on this blog. But of course, it has to be grilled! For the beginning I’ll post a very simple recipe. All you need is just a banana and various additional topping (it’s up to you, you can put anything you want). In this recipe I use chocolate sauce, almond, vanilla ice cream and strawberry. So simple, isn’t it? It only takes less than 20 minutes. And here’s the complete recipe.


INGREDIENTS

2 bananas, unpeeled

Chocolate sauce

Strawberry

Vanilla ice cream

Honey (optional)


DIRECTIONS

Slice bananas in a half lengthwise and crosswise. If you like sweet, you can brush honey on cut sides of bananas.

Preheat grill for low heat.

Grill bananas for over 2 minutes each sides, or until grill marks appear.

Put grilled bananas on a serving plate. Top the bananas with two scoops of vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Sprinkle almonds on top of ice cream. Place strawberry or cherry for the final touch.

Remember, this is a basic recipe and it’s customizable. You can change the ice cream with whipped cream, or change the chocolate sauce with melted cheese. Just let your imagination lead your way!

Foodbuzz Rocks!!!

It’s almost a month I didn’t post any recipes in this blog, because I had some problem with my PC. I don’t know exactly about the trouble, but suddenly I couldn’t boot my PC. It’s totally black out! There’s nothing I can do to fix it. And the only way is I have to reprogram my PC and it means I lost everything in my PC. I’m so desperate because I put all my recipes and my pictures there. I started to think about stop blogging and closed this blog. But yesterday, when I checked my email, I read a message from foodbuzz. It said that I got my first payment from foodbuzz featured publisher program. Wow! It’s surprising. Because when I joined for the first time, I didn’t expect a lot from this program. And the most important thing is it’s already sent to my PayPal account! So excited, because it’s the first payment I got for monetizing my blog hehehe. And you know what? It brings my blogging spirit back. MONEY DOES MATTER, doesn’t it? Hahaha.
