Turkey Satay Skewers – Recipe

So, another one for the BBQ.

Having a massive tub of The Protein Works Super Crunchy Peanut Butter comes in extremely handy!

What you need

  • 4 Tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 1 Onion – roughly chopped
  • 1 Garlic Clove – roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp. Creamed Coconut
  • 4 tbsp. Sesame Oil
  • 1 tsp. light soy sauce
  • 2tbsp. Lime juice
  • 2 fresh red chillies – deseeded and chopped
  • 3 Kaffir Lime Leaves – torn
  • 340g Diced Turkey Breast
  • Additional broken peanuts – options

Put everything but the turkey in a food processor and process to a smooth paste.

Transfer to a bowl and add the Turkey. Stir and coat thoroughly and cover and leave to marinate or up to 8 hours.

Turkey Satay Skewers

Thread the Turkey on to pre-soaked wooden skewers reserving the marinade. Cook, turn and brush frequently with the marinade for 10 minutes or until cooked.

I generally replace all my chicken dishes with Turkey – it has about half the amount of calories as the same serving as chicken and has a much lower fat content (in fact no saturated fat). Overall though I just prefer it! However, if you are after higher levels of proteins then hit the chicken!

Serve and enjoy!

Again no picture of the after…. too busy enjoying ourselves!
