Almond Butter Coconut Satay Sauce
My measurements are always pretty rough when I am making satay sauce because I like taste as I go along. Some days I want it sweeter so I add a little more honey, or I want it thicker so I incorporate more almond butter. Use your discretion as it is easy to completely ruin the sauce when you get a little too heavy-handed.


Ingredients:
Yields: About 1 cup

½ can coconut milk

1 tbsp honey

1-2 tbsp soy sauce

Squirt of siracha

1 tsp lime juice

1-2 tbsp rice vinegar

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced

½ tbsp sesame oil

½ c. almond butter

  1. Sizzle garlic and ginger in sesame oil in small saucepan.

  2. Add other ingredients and whisk quickly until sauce comes together.

  3. Don’t overcook!

  4. Adjust ingredients to your taste preference.

  5. Remove from heat and serve warm with chicken satay.
