This is my take on a quick and easy satay shrimp recipe. Perfect weeknight dinner.

Serves 4


  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 125 ml / 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/2 an onion, grated
  • 1 tablespoon soya sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 500g / 1.2 lb shrimp. peeled and deveined
  • Handful of peanuts as garnish
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped as garnish


In a saucepan over medium heat, combine coconut milk, peanut butter, onion, soy sauce, brown sugar, and pepper flakes
Bring to a boil, stirring frequently
Lower heat and cook for 1 minute
Remove from heat, and keep warm
If using raw shrimp, heat a little oil in a pan and stir fry your shrimp until pink all over, about 2 minutes
Add the shrimp to the sauce and reheat gently
To serve: divide rice or noodles into serving dishes and top with the prawn mixture
Garnish with fresh coriander and crushed salted peanuts
