Thai Pork Satay (Moo Satay)

I always be like this, when someone ask me about the recipe, I really want to make it. So, this one is the request from Thai woman who move to Australia and she really want to make it at home. I adjust the recipe so all the ingredients can be found easily and yes delicious. If you have a chance to come to Thailand you should try this dish but if not, you can make it at home (by following my recipe…Ha ha). This recipe can make about 50 pieces and you can easily use your gill pan (I use it with a great result, so I can prove that you can make this recipe at home). I suggest use non-stick pan when boiling the coconut cream and when making the spicy peanut sauce (satay sauce), because the coconut cream can stick to the pan and burn easily.

Note: The Nahm Prik Pao (Thai chili paste) taste is different from brand to brand so you can adjust the sauce to suite your taste.
