Balinese Prawn Sates / Sate' Udang

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 131


24 shrimp, extra-large (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled and deveined
1/4 cup soy sauce, sweet (ketjap manis) or 2 tablespoons each regular soy sauce and molasses
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons coriander, ground
2 tablespoons lime juice, fresh
2 tablespoons sugar, palm, or firmly packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil


1. Rinse the shrimp under cold running water, then drain and blot dry with paper towels. Set aside while you prepare the marinade.

2. Combine the soy sauce, garlic, coriander, lime juice, sugar, and 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large bowl and whisk until blended and the sugar is dissolved. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and let marinate, in the refrigerator, for 1 hour.

3. Preheat the grill to high.

4. Drain the shrimp. If using the lemongrass stalks as skewers, make a "starter" hole in each shrimp with a metal skewer. Thread the shrimp on the stalks, or on the bamboo skewers, 2 shrimp to each.

5. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate. Arrange the satés on the hot grate and grill, turning with tongs, until the shrimp are nicely browned on the outside and firm and pink inside, about 2 minutes per side. Brush once or twice with the remaining oil as the shrimp cook.

6. Transfer the satés to serving plates or a platter and serve immediately.

Serves 6 to 8 as an appetizer, 4 as an entrée
