Satay Sauce Recipe

By: Susan Joy

This healthy peanut free Satay Sauce is delicious served warm with Satay Chicken skewers, or chilled and served as a dipping sauce for raw vegetables.

Serves: Makes 2 1/2 cups | Prep Time: 00:10* | Cooking Time: 00:00 | *Plus soaking time


  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk, (use a thick brand like Ayam)
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 3 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp maple syrup, 100%
  • Juice of 1/2 lime(s)
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/3 – 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • A pinch of chilli, powder (optional)


Place the almonds and cashews into a medium bowl, add 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and cover generously with boiling water. Allow the nuts to soak for at least 1 hour, then drain and rinse the nuts well.

Add the drained nuts and remaining ingredients to a high-speed blender. Blend on high until the nuts have broken down but leave just a little crunch (if you prefer a smoother texture blend longer to reach your desired consistency).

Serve with Satay Chicken or Beef skewers, or with raw vegetables as a dipping sauce.

Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
