I haven't had a chance to try this recipe yet. (This is a recipe I adopted from the Zaar account.)

Another great recipe from Mean Chef! Wonderful and easy to prepare, versatile and tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you wish use peanut butter rather than fresh peanuts.
  2. First grind or crush the peanuts to a fairly fine powder.
  3. Then combine them with the remaining ingredients (except the lime juice), to form a smooth sauce.
  4. If the sauce is too thick, you can thin it with a little chicken stock.
  5. Now add the lime juice, tasting as you progress to check the balance of flavors is correct.
  6. Note use red curry paste with beef or pork satay, massaman (as above) with chicken.
  7. If you are doing shrimp satay then use half the quantity of massaman paste.
