1 lemongrass stalk, finely sliced

1 tsp chopped kaffir lime peel
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp salt

2 tbsp peanut oil
1 tsp Penang Curry Paste

Satay was introduced from Malaysia, but it is now synonymous with Thai food. You can make these with chicken, beef, pork or with king prawns.
For the marinade, place the coriander seeds in a mortar and grind to a powder, then add the other ingredients in turn, grinding each one into the mixture to form a paste. Place the pork, curry paste, oil and palm sugar in a bowl, mix thoroughly, cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for three to five hours.
To make the dipping sauce, heat the oil in a pan. Add the curry paste, stir well and cook for few seconds. Stir in the coconut milk, stock, sugar, salt and lime juice and stir to blend. Cook for two minutes, stirring constantly. Add the peanuts, stirring, then pour the sauce into a bowl and set aside.
Thread two pieces of marinated pork onto each skewer, then grill or barbecue the satays for about five minutes on each side until the meat is cooked through. Serve with the peanut curry dipping sauce.

A New World white wine would match best with pork satay and peanut sauce. Choose a wine with lots of aromatics to balance the heat of the curry paste marinade.
