Why Don’t We Uncluck & Skewer

Recipe submitted by Daring

Original Pieces on a stick? Satay what? These smoky-sweet, turmeric-hued apps will get de-skewered as fast as they come together. Our advice? It never hurts to make a double batch.

6 minutes | Serves 3-4


  • 1
    10oz pouch , thawed
  • 1 13.5 oz
    can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp
    plus 1 tsp shallot, peeled and finely minced
  • 1
    clove garlic, grated
  • 1 tbsp
    soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp
    ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp
    cane sugar
  • 1/8 tsp
    cayenne pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup
    smooth, unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp
    lime juice
  • 1 tsp
    lime zest
  • Coconut or neutral oil, as needed
  • Torn cilantro, for garnish
  • Lime wedges, for garnish


  • Large bowl
  • Wooden skewers
  • Grill pan or grill


Step 1

In a large bowl, whisk together coconut milk, shallot, garlic, soy sauce, turmeric, sugar, cayenne and 1/2 tsp kosher salt. Reserve 2/3 cup of the mixture in a small bowl and set aside. Add the thawed Original Daring Pieces to the large bowl and toss in the marinade so each piece is evenly coated. Let the pieces marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator.

Step 2

While the Daring marinates, prepare the peanut sauce. Whisk together the reserved marinade, peanut butter, lime juice and zest until smooth. Taste and adjust for salt as needed with additional kosher salt or soy sauce.

Step 3

When the pieces have finished marinating, carefully slide 3 to 4 pieces onto each wooden skewer.

Step 4

If using a traditional grill, preheat on the highest heat setting. If using a grill pan, set over high heat until it’s barely smoking and brush lightly with coconut oil (or any other neutral oil). Set the skewered daring pieces on the grill or grill pan and sear, undisturbed, for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until deeply-charred grill marks appear. Flip and repeat on the remaining side. Remove from the heat and arrange skewers on a serving platter.
