Instructions
  1. Cut the chicken into thin strips.
  2. For the marinade, combine all of the ingredients and toss the meat through it.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to overnight.
  3. Soak the wooden skewers in cold water for at least 30 minutes to prevent them burning.
  4. To make the satay sauce: gently cook the garlic in coconut oil for a few minutes, then stir in the chillies,  nut butter, coconut sugar, tamarind or lime juice and coconut milk. Increase or decrease the amount of chilli, depending on how hot you would prefer it.  Cook, while stirring, over a medium heat for 5 minutes.  Season to taste with salt and set aside to cool.
  5. Combine the cucumbers, vinegar, coconut sugar and coriander, then season to taste with salt.
  6. Take the meat out of the fridge approximately 30 minutes before cooking.  Remove the meat from the marinade and thread the strips onto the skewers.
  7. Grill or BBQ the skewers over a low heat for about 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  8. Serve the skewers immediately with satay sauce, cucumber salad and lime wedges on the side.
Recipe Notes

In place of the chicken this recipe works beautifully with grass-fed and finished beef steak, pasture-raised pork, or wild-caught prawns.
