on a plate





This is how the chicken satay looked on a plate with a little peanut sauce. The peanut sauce is a little ingredient intensive. I used red onions, garlic, red peppers and ginger sauteed in peanut oil to which I added a splash of fish sauce, a splash of oyster sauce, a drizzle of rice wine vinegar a big drizzle of honey and a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter. I garnished with some red peppers and cilantro resulting in a peanuty, spicy and sweet salty condiment.

Looks great! Those satays look picture perfect. It's just me, but I find Thai peanut sauce a little overpowering for my taste buds!

buff: it isnt just you, I find it to be a little too salty...all the various ingredients have salt...

Beth said...

you had me at chicken but then lost me at peanut butter...I just think that sounds so gross!!! UGH! I can hardly get down a PB&J!!!

I don't love peanut butter, but I love a peanut sauce. That looks terrific.

The sauce sounds delicious, salty, but delicious. I love my noodles in peanut sauce. YUM!

beth: its just a little bit of extra to dip the chicken in, no one said you had to slather it on a hoagie.

kitt: thanks kit...next time I wont follow the recipe so 'close' and see if I can kick it up a bit

claudia: cold sesame noodles are the best....

My daughter can chow down on chicken satay and sticky rice along with pad thai! It's her favorite right there next to French fries and strawberry shortcake! They look beautiful.
