  • About

Saté lilit rank among the most exquisite of Indonesia’s satés. Their birthplace is Bali, where they are used in and served at religious festivals. To make them, a delicate mousse is flavored with explosively aromatic spices, then enriched with coconut milk and grilled on fragrant lemongrass stalks. The mousse can be made of fish, shrimp, chicken, duck, and even turtle.

Even if you can’t locate a few of the special ingredients here, you can still prepare saté lilit. Kaf
