Satay

Satay (also written saté) is a dish consisting of meat, fish or poultry marinated in a spicy peanut sauce and then grilled. It originated in Indonesia but is popular in many southeast Asian countries such as Thailand.

It was believed that the food was invented by Chinese immigrants who sold the skewered barbecue meat on the street. The word satay means "triple stacked" (三疊) in Amoy dialect.
