Pork Satay With Peanut Lime Dipping Sauce

This is incredibly easy to make and a delicious addition to any Asian-themed meal! I got this recipe from my Dad; I think he got it from a LCBO magazine about 10 years ago. The preparation time includes marinating time. The peanut lime dipping sauce can be made up to 3 days ahead, but grill the satays just before serving. You can also substitute beef, chicken or shrimp, for the pork, with equally delicious results!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in food processor or blender and puree. Set aside.
  2. Cut pork into 6-inch lengths and slice each length into 1/2-inch long strips. Thread pork strips onto bamboo skewers.
  3. Place skewers into 9x13-inch pan (or a zipper bag) and pour marinade over all. Turn skewers to ensure they are evenly coated. Cover, refrigerate and marinate for 2 to 3 hours.
  4. Grill pork for 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  5. Peanut Lime Sauce:.
  6. Put peanut butter in a medium size bowl. Slowly whisk in remaining ingredients. The peanut butter will "seize" after each liquid addition, but keep whisking and it will smooth out.

I used chicken instead of pork....delish! My kids liked the meat without the dipping sauce. The chicken had such good flavor after grilling. My husband and I used the dipping sauce, which was fabulous! Lots of depth of flavor. Excellent Dish. I will definitely use again!!

The marinade was great, I will use this recipe on a regular basis. I didn't have chili sauce so I used a dried poblano. The marinade, I did change a little. I found that it wasn't sweet enough, so I added about 2 Tbsp extra of brown sugar and a little bit of the pulp from coconut mik. Thanks for posting.

REALLY delicious! We used pounded chicken thighs instead of pork, and it was so good. We have 2 toddlers and they couldn't get enough either! We didn't have ginger so we used ginger marmalade and reduced the sugar a little bit to make up for that change. Other than that, we didn't alter the recipe at all, and it was fantastic!
