Simple Satay Sauce - Recipe

The sweet-spice and nutty flavour of satay kebabs

Super-quick satay sauce with no added oil

This recipe is so easy there's really no excuse to continue buying a ready-made sauce. The sauce can be used to coat meat, vegetables, Quorn or Tofu. You can also stir it straight into the sautee pan half-way through stir-frying.

The Ketchup is probably the most 'naughty' ingredient in this sauce. However, you can always substitute with tomato puree, just add a little extra water to the mix. This recipe doesn't require any extra oil as the natural oils in the peanut butter are sufficient to keep the meat/quorn moist.

This sauce is sufficient to cover 600g of chicken, which makes around eight medium sized kebabs.


- 5 Tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter
- ½ tsp Chinese Five Spice
- ¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 1 Tbsp Ketchup
- 1 tsp Lemon Juice
- 50ml hot water from the kettle

How to prepare the sauce

1) Spoon out the peanut butter into a small mixing bowl. Add the Chinese Five Spice and Cayenne Pepper and stir.

2) Add the lemon juice, ketchup and hot water. Stir into a smooth, loose paste. Add a more water if required.

3) Using wet hands coat your chosen meat, Quorn or Tofu and cook immediately.
