Satay, or sate in Indonesia in the country where it originated, is a dish of seasoned meat that is skewered, then grilled and served with a sauce poured over it. The meat may be chicken that is diced or sliced, mutton, beef, goat meat or fish. It may also be made of tofu. The original Indonesian recipe uses skewers made from the midsection of the coconut palm frond. Today, bamboo skewers are often used. The skewered meat is barbecued or grilled over a wood or charcoal fire then served over different spicy seasonings. Satay can be served over different types of sauces. Typically, it is served over soy and peanut sauce. This is why peanut sauce is often called satay sauce.
