Magic of Monkey Nut Butter Satay Sauce: Easy, Healthy, and Insanely Delicious

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

There's a reason satay sauce has taken the world by storm. It's that perfect blend of sweet, savoury, salty, and a hint of spice that elevates any dish it touches. But have you ever considered making your own satay sauce? It might surprise you just how easy (and delicious!) it can be.

Here at 99th Monkey, we're all about celebrating the versatility of our nut butters. And trust us, when it comes to crafting a fantastic satay sauce, our peanut butter is the secret weapon you've been missing.

Why Make Your Own Satay Sauce?

There are several compelling reasons to ditch the store-bought stuff and whip up your own satay sauce at home. First and foremost, it's incredibly simple. Forget about complicated ingredients or lengthy procedures. Our recipe, which we'll share below, takes just minutes to prepare.

Second, making your own satay sauce allows you complete control over the flavour profile. Want it a touch sweeter? Add a drizzle of honey. Craving a bit more heat? Throw in a pinch of chilli flakes. You can tailor the sauce to your exact preferences, unlike the pre-made options that can be one-dimensional or packed with unnecessary additives.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, homemade satay sauce is simply healthier. Store-bought varieties often contain a surprising amount of sugar and sodium. By making your own, you can choose high-quality ingredients and control the amount of sugar and salt that goes into your sauce.

The Symphony of Satay Sauce

So, what makes satay sauce so incredibly satisfying? It's the beautiful interplay of flavours. The rich nuttiness of the peanut butter forms the base, providing a comforting and slightly earthy foundation. Coconut cream adds a touch of sweetness and creaminess, while soy sauce brings in a savoury depth. The magic doesn't stop there. A hint of ginger's freshness cuts through the richness, and lime juice offers a vibrant citrusy note. Finally, a touch of curry powder (or your preferred spice blend) adds a subtle warmth that brings everything together in perfect harmony.

Beyond the Satay Skewers

While satay sauce is a natural partner for grilled skewers of chicken or vegetables, its versatility knows no bounds. Our recipe, featuring the star of the show - 99th Monkey Natural Peanut Butter (both salted and unsalted work beautifully) - can be used in a multitude of ways.

Here are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Stir-Fry Sensation: As we've featured in this post, the satay sauce transforms a simple stir-fry of chicken and vegetables into a flavour explosion. Serve it over rice for a complete and satisfying meal.
  • Dipping Delight: Let your satay sauce shine as a dipping sauce for dumplings, rice paper rolls, spring rolls, and anything else that begs for a flavourful dunk.
  • Noodle Nirvana: Toss cooked noodles in your homemade satay sauce for a quick and satisfying lunch or dinner. Add your favourite protein and veggies for extra oomph.
  • Tofu Takes Center Stage: Tofu lovers rejoice! Drizzle your satay sauce over pan-fried or baked tofu served with rice for a plant-based protein punch.
