Skewer protein on half satay sticks, season and cook on grill plate until brown. Brush satay sauce over the skewers.
For the sauce: mix all ingredients in food processor and heat in the pan. Serve skewers with leftover satay sauce
If stir-frying, pan fry leans protein until golden. Set aside. Add some mixed vegetables to the pan and stir-fry for a few minutes. Add protein and satay sauce to the pan and cook until heated through.
Tip: Sauce turns out quite thick (peanut butter consistency). To create a ‘mustard like’ consistency, stir in some water. This will make about 600ml!!!!
