Blend the garlic and shallots and combine the spices. Then add all the other ingredients.
Marinade the meat in this mixture for at least 2 hours or better if it is left overnight in the fridge.
Skewer the meat onto the bamboo skewers, don’t pack the meat too closely together to enable the satay to cook quickly and evenly.
For the best flavour, cook this over a charcoal grill or alternatively you can just grill it in the oven or on a griddle pan.
Grilling the satay
Baste the satay with a stalk of lemongrass, that has been bashed to resemble a brush, and oil while grilling.
