Books For Cooks/Spicy Peanut Satay Sauce

If like me, you are a lover of cookbooks and good food there is a little place hidden away in Notting Hill, London that sounds like a dream come true. It's a book store which contains 1000's of titles and recipes from some of these books are put to the test each day in the store's cafe. A place I must pencil in to visit someday!
This recipe is credited to the owner of that bookstore, Eric Treuille.
It works well with the chicken satay or any grilled/BBQ meats. The sauce will keep for about 1 week in the fridge.

Spicy Peanut Satay Sauce

250g (8oz) peanut butter
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp Tabasco
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp runny honey
juice of 1 lemon
125ml water or coconut milk

1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth.
2. Cover and let stand for 30 mins at room temp to allow flavours to blend.
3. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Been dying to try this for ages & have just made it for family supper later. It's divine! Somehow I don't think it will last the week in the fridge:)

I tried this yesterday to go with chicken and veg skewered, cooked on the BBQ. The combination of flavours is really delicious and I couldn't help but organise dinner again this evening to include the satay sauce - super recipe. Thanks!

Thanks for your comment Ms.N! Glad you like the recipe. I must make this sauce again, it really is scrummy!
