Believe it or not, I've never had peanut satay! Last nite my wife and I fought over who was going to get the first scoop out of a new jar of peanut butter! There is no better then that first finger of fresh peanut butter! And I had an idea of trying satay! Quick and easy and damn good.

boneless chicken breasts and pork loin

Marinade:

6 cloves garlic, chopped
4 tsp. coriander
4 tsp. light brown sugar
1 tbsp. black pepper
2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. soy sauce
4 tsp. ginger, chopped
2 tbsp. lime juice
6 tbsp. oil
1/4 c. fresh coriander, chopped (for garnish)

Mix marinade ingredients. Cut chicken and pork into 1 1/2-2 inch cubes. Add to mixture and marinate at least two hours.

Chicken and pork Satay:

Thread chicken and pork pieces onto one end of satay sticks,alternating with onion, bell pepper and mushrooms. Barbeque, baste with marinade. Serve with peanut sauce for dipping.

Peanut Sauce:

1 c. chunky peanut butter
1-2 tsp. hot chili sauce
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 c. lime juice
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. peanut oil

Put ingredients together in blender and puree. Should have a sweet/hot peanut flavor. Taste and adjust ingredients accordingly.


Get all the contestants ready!

Chicken Yakatori ,
Start with Nori Miso soup ,in lacquered wooden bowls.
................................
Serve with Saki or Tequila .
How about a Blue Wasabi cocktail? It's saki, pineapple juice, blue curacao and wasabi.
You can swap out the saki for tequila
..................................
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 pound sirloin steak, cubed or/and
1 pound chicken Brest,cubed or/and
1 pound Pork Loin, cubed

In a glass or plastic bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, oil, lemon juice, sesame seeds, sugar, green onions, garlic, and ginger.

Thread the meat onto skewers. (If you are using wooden skewers, soak them 30 minutes first.) Place the skewers in a plastic or glass container just large enough to hold them, and pour the marinade over the meat, turning to coat well. Cover, and chill for a minimum of 4 hours.

Preheat grill for high heat, and position grate 5 inches from coals.

Brush grate with oil, and place skewers on grill. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, occasionally turning kabobs to ensure even cooking.

The dish Just reminded me of Japanese food I've had in the past .Back then after a leasurly rubdown and massage, soaking in a hot tub I would sit around a hibachi pot with Japanese girls feeding me from the grill on a lazy Saturday afternoon.
Akadama Plum wine, Nori Miso soup,Yakatory Chicken,Rice balls,I.W. Harper Johnnie Collins !It sounds like one of Cold Warrior's Pleasure Palace pipe dreams !

I'm used to satay as smaller appetizer skewers - my mother served a ton of them at a party she gave for my husband and me shortly after our marriage.

That happens to be a molded ball of sticky rice! A perfect hemisphere, not a grain out of place!
Sorry it was on a paper plate though!

It looked fine & there is nothing wrong with paper plates.

The meal looks great!
