Satay, claimes by several Asian countries as their national dish, is closely associated with Indonesian cooking. It refers to grilled strips of meat (often skewered), usually served with a peanut sauce.
To remove the skin of a garlic clove easily, press the clove firmly with the broad side of a chef's knife. Slice off the ends and the skin will pop right off.
For a delicious appetizer, pound the raw chicken breast, cut it into strips and thread the pieces onto wooden skewers that have been soaked in water for 30 minutes to prevent scorching. Grill the skewers and heap them on a serving platter surrounding a dish of the peanut dressing.
