I recently watched an old episode from the late Anthony Bourdain’s CNN television set show Parts Unknown where by he visited Singapore. While he explored and dined on his way around that city-state, it brought back delightful memories of my travels there decades ago.

I, too, ate my way all over Singapore and what I became most fond of has been their many hawker revolves. They are outdoor food courts with numerous stalls each offering another type of Southeast Asian-style dish, for example chicken rice, fish-head curry in addition to chili crab.
But what I remember most vividly will be satay. Threading small, marinated types of chicken, meat and also fish, or prawns, on bamboo skewers is how satay is created. When you see them cooking with a grill in Singapore overnight time, the combination with the sultry tropical air, the orangey light from your charcoal-fuelled flames, the alluring scent from the bamboo and the appearance in the mouth-watering, sizzling satay all combine to make you want to eat them, now.

Just thinking of them again made we aim for some and, with no current plans for vacations Singapore, I made my own. You’ll find the recipe below along with one for peanut sauce, for dipping.

Before threading for the marinated chicken, you should soak the bamboo skewers in water to assist prevent them from hooking on fire when set around the grill. But even when you do that they continue to can ignite. That explains why in Singapore the thing is grills with a prolonged narrow strip of steel about 10 to 15 centimetres wide on just one side. When the satay is defined on the grill, the meat portion is positioned over the fire. The wood portion rests for the fire-insulted strip of material, preventing the exposed component to the skewer from getting on fire.

As noted inside a previous story on satay, to be able to recreate this on our propane barbecue, I set a twice thick strip of aluminum foil of similar width on the front portion of the grill. I then heat the particular grill to medium-high and also set the meat portion belonging to the skewer over the flame, and the meatless end around the foil. This technique, together with soaking the skewers throughout water, should prevent the exposed elements of wood from igniting.
