Not only a great meal, shrimp satay is fun finger food and a super addition to any party tray. Use leftover peanut sauce, thickened with tangy black bean sauce and livened up with hot sauce and you've got a great dip for skewered shrimp. The sauce is perfect with vegetables too. I like to serve this dish with Asian noodles or rice and snap peas on the side.


Spicy (or Mild) Peanut Sauce:


  1. Wooden or metal skewers
  2. In a small saucepan, combine reserved peanut sauce, black bean sauce and hot sauce. Set pan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer 5 to 7 minutes, until sauce reduces slightly.
  3. Meanwhile, coat a stove-top grill pan, griddle or large skillet with cooking spray and set pan over medium-high heat. Skewer shrimp on skewers, leaving a little space between shrimp to allow for even cooking. Add shrimp skewers to hot pan and cook 5 minutes, until bright pink and cooked through, turning frequently.
  4. Serve shrimp with peanut sauce on the side (for dunking!).
