Marinated meats grilled over glowing coals, called satays in Southeast Asia, have an irresistible combination of sweetness, heat, acid, and spice that is downright addictive.

Travel to Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Bali and Cambodia, and you’ll find these popular snacks on every corner.


However, you don’t have to take a long plane trip to enjoy these tasty bites. You can recreate a version in your own backyard on your grill—whether it’s gas or charcoal.
