    spatchcock's Note:

    This looks incredible. Another recipe sent to me from my mother (who knows I LOOOOVE ethnic cooking!) I will be posting the katjang (spicy peanut) sauce separately. (Prep time is marinade time). This is an appetizer recipe, so the serving sizes may be small compared to what one would need for a main course.

      Nice! I could really taste the flavor, even after only a couple of hours marinating. Was a bit on the salty side though, so I won't add the tsp of salt next time. Thanks! o(^o^)o

      This was great. Unfortunately I could not get hold of any dark molasses so I substituted it for honey. Also I used lemon juice instead of lime juice. Everyone at my dinnerparty loved it. Thanks for posting
