Tender chicken skewers in a creamy, sweet cashew nut sauce. Served in a shot glass it became a delicious bite to eat out of hand.
A peanut allergy is not convenient. Believe me. I got it when I was in my early twenties. It developed so to speak. And so I built a fondness for peanut sauce from my past before the allergy. So one of the snacks I was fond of most in my teen years was namely a spring roll with egg and peanut sauce (yes we all have our flaws ;-)).
But for more than a decade now, I can’t eat any peanuts anymore. And that’s not nice, not nice at all. Besides the fact that I can not eat out normally (I’m happy when I got no allergic reaction) I miss the occasional tasty things that I can’t eat anymore. Well the grass is always greener on the other site isn’t it.
But I got lucky. I just have a peanut allergy and no nut allergies. A nut allergy is quite different. And so I do occasionally make this cashew nut sauce. As a replacement for my peanut sauce. Also quite tasty. Today I serve it with a delicious chicken skewer in a shot glass. A nice bite to serve for example on New Years Eve. But let’s face it, a chicken satay in cashew nut sauce is always delicious!
