Prawn satay


You'll need

80 ml (1/3 cup) tamari 80 ml (1/3 cup) melted coconut oil 15 gm ginger, finely grated 4 garlic cloves, crushed 1 tbsp roasted red chilli flakes 1 tsp ground cumin 16 uncooked king prawns, in the shell   Satay sauce 140 gm (1 cup) cashew nuts, plus extra, coarsely chopped, to serve 125 gm (½ cup) almond butter (see note) 2 tbsp finely grated ginger 1 small red chilli, seeds removed, coarsely chopped 2 tbsp tamari 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil 1 tbsp maple syrup

Method

  • For satay sauce, process cashew nuts in a food processor until finely ground, then add almond butter, ginger and fresh chilli, and process to a coarse paste. Add tamari, sesame oil and maple syrup, blend well, then, with the motor running, slowly add 60ml water and process until smooth. Add a little more water if you prefer a thinner sauce. Set aside in a bowl.

Note Almond butter is available at health food stores and the health food section of select supermarkets.
