We don’t know about you, but we love the Oscars! The fashion, the stars and especially, the excuse to have a party. So we thought we would share with you some award worthy snacks and cocktails to share with your friends on this upcoming Oscar night.
This Teriyaki Satay sauce, created by Chef Ivan Flowers, works well on chicken, beef, pork, veggies and even pasta.
Spiced Teriyaki Peanut Butter Satay Sauce
2 cups peanut butter
3 ounces Spiced Maui Maid Teriyaki Sauce
Juice of 1 lime and 1 lemon
2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
Place peanut butter in a metal bowl over boiling water
Whisk till smooth then add teriyaki sauce, lemon and lime juice and chopped cilantro
Place vegetable or meat of choice on skewers. Remember if they are wooden to soak in water at least 10 minutes. Grill skewered meat or vegetables & brush generously with Teriyaki Satay sauce during last few minutes of grilling. Serve warm or at room temperature with extra sauce for dipping.
Now, you are going to want to serve a cocktail (or two!) to your guests. Why not a Bloody Mary Bar?
