I have always wanted to make my own satay sauce and this one was so delicious, so easy and inexpensive to make, that I doubt I will ever order a satay dish from my local Thai restaurant again! This creamy satay sauce works well with any stir fried protein/vegetable combination (or grilled skewers) and is made extra tasty when served with rice and a crisp side salad dressed with lime juice. DO try this at home!
