This could also be made with any other meat sub such as seitan, or with real meat like chicken or beef.

I've always loved satay but never knew how to make it before. I followed this recipe last week and it was easy and turned out very well. I will be making it again very soon. Thanks for sharing it! I used sambal instead of hot sauce/red pepper flakes. Yum yum.
