Recipe by KateL
READY IN: 36mins




  • Soak the bamboo skewers or cocktail sticks in cold water for 10 minutes to prevent them from burning.
  • Season the crocodile or chicken generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cut into strips about 1cm x 2cm (0.5in x 1in).
  • Mix together the marinade ingredients and marinate the crocodile or chicken strips for half an hour or longer if possible.
  • To make the satay sauce, combine all the satay sauce ingredients together in a small pan, adding just enough soy sauce to season. Add a little palm sugar or light brown muscovado sugar to sweeten, if necessary.
  • Simmer very gently for five minutes.
  • Preheat a barbecue, grill or griddle pan until very hot.
  • Thread two or three strips of marinated crocodile or chicken meat onto each skewer and place on the barbecue or griddle pan or under the grill.
  • Cook for a few minutes on each side until cooked through and golden, being careful not to overcook.
  • Serve the skewers with the hot satay sauce for dipping.
