OUR TIME SPENT WITH FAMILY IN THE MEKONG DELTA WAS ALL ABOUT EATING LOCAL DISHES AND COOKING WITH LOCAL PRODUCE. MY FATHER CREATED THE SPICY SATE SAUCE RECIPE, USED HERE AND IN OTHER RECIPES, WHILE ATTEMPTING TO MAKE THE TRADITIONAL VERSION. VIETNAMESE SATE SAUCE IS NOT LIKE THE MALAY-STYLE PEANUT SATAY SAUCE – THE VIETNAMESE VERSION IS CHILLI-BASED AND IS USED IN STIR-FRIES AND ADDED TO BROTHS.
