Add the soy sauce of ketjap and the coconut milk, bring to a simmer, then add the peanut butter and stir until smooth (use a whisk).

Adjust seasoning to taste.

Every peanut butter and soy sauce is different, so these quantities are just a guideline, you might like more or less of each, just taste along the way.

 

Peanut sauce or satay sauce is great with meats from the BBQ, but I also love dunking bread in it 😉

you can halve the recipe easily, but you might regret it ,..
