In the Philippines, like in Indonesia, Thailand and many other parts of South East Asia, chicken or pork cooked on a grill is pretty much the typical street food. In every community’s street corner you will never miss a barbecue stand. Even in the tiniest villages, you won’t miss the aroma of freshly grilled meat. Of course a favorite accompaniment to grilled meat is the Peanut Sauce.

Since we eat a lot of Asian food and certainly at least once a week we feast on grilled chicken skewers, I thought it’s time to post our own spin on Satay Sauce or more popularly known as Peanut Sauce. This is very easy to make – just mix and heat and you’re done. It is at once nutty, salty, sweet creamy and if you like with a little hint of spice. Certainly, feel free to tweak the taste to your liking. Enjoy!
