Oh the joy of somebody who really understands flavour doing all the work for you so you can have a night off. Thats what Ive got here: this fantastically nutty, zingy, fiery satay from my good friend Danny.


Unfortunately, he only made one jar of the stuff and Ive used it all. But he has kindly shared his not-so-secret recipe so you can enjoy this sensational satay too. Use it as a marinade to marinate some chicken, then add it to coconut milk to make a delicious creamy sauce.


Serves 2-4


For the chicken


6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into big chunks


For Dannys Satay marinade


1 or 2 red chillis (to taste) deseeded chopped
1 clove of garlic chopped finely
Thumb sized piece of ginger chopped
2 limes
Soy sauce to taste (I use Sanchi Tamari or Lee Kum Kee Double Deluxe if possible)
4-5 heaped tablespoons of Whole Earth crunchy peanut, cashew, hazelnut or almond butter


For the sauce


Add half a can of coconut milk to 2 tbsp of the marinade

4. Add a splash of water if too thick


5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


To make the chicken


1. Add 6 tbsp satay marinade to a non-metallic bowl. Add the chicken chunks and mix until the chicken is thoroughly coated. Leave to marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours.
