Recipe: Satay Sauce

You can make this sauce in advance and keep it in a jar in the fridge to pour over your next dinner.


  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 small red chilli, deseeded
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 3 tbsp almond butter
  • Juice of one lime
  • 2 tbsp sugar (coconut or rapadura)
  • 3 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp Tamari
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander


  • Finely chop garlic, onion, chilli and add to small saucepan.
  • Add cumin and coconut oil and saute for 2-3 mins.
  • Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients except water and fresh coriander.  Mix vigorously to form a paste.
  • Return saucepan to hotplate on medium heat.  Start to gradually add the water whilst consistently stirring.  Simmer for 3-5 mins, stirring so it doesn’t stick.  More water will give you a runner sauce.
  • Stir through coriander and then pour sauce over steamed chicken thighs and vegies for a quick satay chicken.
