  • Wooden skewers — Soaking the skewers in water prevents them from burning during grilling.

Tips & Tricks

  • Serve the satay skewers with a side of peanut sauce for an authentic Indonesian touch.
  • If you don't have a grill, you can also cook the skewers on a stovetop grill pan or in the oven under the broiler.
