About the Recipe

A decent satay sauce, made from store cupboard ingredients is a great recipe to have on standby.
It's a simple way to pep up a rotisserie chicken, drizzle over a salad or to use as a dip for veggies.


  • 3 heaped tbsp smooth SunnyB sunflower seed butter

  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce  - (use tamari for gluten free)

  • ½ tsp chili flakes - red pepper flakes

  • 1 tbsp fish sauce - (sub with vegetarian fish sauce if you want it vegetarian)

  • 200ml coconut milk  - from a tin

  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar

  • ½ tsp ground coriander

  • Juice of 1 lime - (about 2 tbsp)


  • Place all of the satay sauce ingredients EXCEPT for the lime juice into a small pan

  • Heat over medium heat whilst stirring with a wooden spoon. The sauce will look thin at first, then as it comes close to boiling point, it will start to thicken. Don't let the sauce boil, just turn down the heat as it approaches boiling point and stir until thickened, then turn off the heat and stir in the lime juice.

  • Transfer the sauce to a serving dish and sprinkle with sesame seeds, chopped peanuts, chilli flakes and fresh coriander before serving.
