A different sort of satay!

Top Review by TasteTester

I made this last night for dinner and everyone loved it! The marinade ingredients were all in perfect proportion; I thought the garlic might overpower the delicate and sweet taste of the coconut milk, but it didn't. I had never made a marinade before using coconut milk so I'm really glad I tried this recipe because it's fantastic. Thanks for posting!
