Quick and easy satay sauce

June 18, 2011 § 1 Comment

This tastes great on top of noodles with steamed vegetables (which happens to be a regular meal here!) or with rice and grilled chicken.



  • 1 small brown onion, diced very finely
  • 1 large clove or 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of Tamari/soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chilli powder, ground
  • 1 x 420 tin of coconut cream
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil (NOT olive oil)
  • pinch of salt



  1. On a medium/high heat, add the oil and saute the garlic and onion til they are translucent.
  2. Add the chilli powder, stirring continuously to cook out the flavour, then add the peanut butter.
  3. Turn the heat down to medium/low. Keep stirring, add the sugar, lemon juice, tamari, salt and finally the coconut cream.
  4. Mix thoroughly until combined for a few minutes. Remove from heat.


Voila! You’re done. Enjoy. 😀

This recipe makes a lot of sauce (about 3 cups) so it can be halved but I like to make it in big batches because I like to eat it for leftovers and dip my hot chips into it. Hehe.
