Satay Prawns with Thai Broccoli Rice | Recipe

February 19, 2016

As I chatted about my Asian and Oriental food adventures the other day, I thought I should share one of my favourite recipes with you. This is my home made Satay Prawns with Thai Broccoli Rice!

Getting into the spirit of all this cooking was easy with a wonderful stash of goodies from Blue Dragon. I decided to keep with my theme of making things from scratch and as this recipe had such a good response on Instagram I felt I needed to share it all here with you. I have used prawns this time, but there is no harm in changing this to whatever you fancy from tofu to beef, this recipe can be made entirely vegan if needs be!

Satay Prawns
  1. 200g Cooked and peeled king prawns
  2. 3 tbsp Crunchy peanut butter
  3. 1 tbsp Blue Dragon Light soy sauce
  4. 165 ml Blue Dragon Light coconut milk
  5. Juice of half a lime
  6. 2 tsp Curry powder
  7. 1 tsp Runny honey
  8. Pinch Chilli flakes
  9. Pinch Ground pepper
Thai Broccoli Rice
  1. 1 Broccoli head, cut into florets then blitzed in a food processor
  2. Mange tout
  3. Baby corn
  4. Green pepper, chopped
  5. 1 chilli, chopped (with seeds if you want the heat)
  6. 1 tsp Garlic paste
  7. 1 tsp Ginger paste
  8. 1 tbsp Blue Dragon Light soy sauce
For the Satay Prawns
  1. Mix everything in a bowl, excluding the pepper, chilli flakes and coconut milk. If it feels stiff add a little water, but not too much.
  2. Put 2/3 of the mixture in a pan with the coconut milk, pepper and chilli flakes. Put on a low heat and stir until everything has mixed together. Leave on a low heat to thicken, stirring occasionally.
  3. Coat the prawns in the remaining 1/3 of marinade, put on a skewer ready for grilling.
  4. These take a few minutes to grill so put them in towards the end of cooking everything (incl. the rice).
For the Thai Broccoli Rice
  1. Bring your pan up to heat and add a little oil, I used coconut. Add in the chilli, ginger and garlic until aromatic. Then add the mange tout, pepper and baby corn. Stir fry on a high heat for a few minutes.
  2. After this add in the broccoli and the light soy sauce and lower the heat to medium, stir fry for four minutes. At this point it's good to get the prawns in for a quick grilling- they won't take long! Although if you have raw prawns, make sure you cook them appropriately.
  3. Now your dinner is ready to serve. Plonk your 'rice' in the bowl, with your prawns on top and drizzle the peanutty sauce over the top, then eat.
  1. I may have pictured chop sticks here, but it's pretty impossible to eat this with them. I totally suggest a fork instead!


Whilst my dish is very tasty, I totally recommend trying the Blue Dragon Chinese BBQ season and sauce. We made it the other night and used carrot spaghetti instead of noodles. This made for another tasty and healthy dinner. Ok Ok, so we broke our no packet sauce rule here, but it was totally worth it and sometimes you just need a quick dinner!


Oh and don’t forget the prawn crackers to dip into your sweet chilli dipping sauce for when you want extra snackage with your dinner! These did not last long between Mr W and I!!

      Me too, it’s usually very quick and easy to make in bulk 🙂 Let me know how it goes if you try it 🙂

    Sounds yummy. I never make Satay but I am sure it should be one of my favourites! Some thing I am most certainly trying is the broccoli rice, very intriguing…

      It’s so easy to make! It was one of my favourite take away choices but now I don’t think I can go back now! You really need to try the rice, it’s pretty delicious!

    That looks so good – how spicy was it??? (I hate spicy with a passion so need to know before I buy!)

      Well the satay is home made… It’s not spicy at all. Satay usually isn’t. Just omit the chilli from the broccoli rice if you don’t like it!

    I love anything satay and I am a little bit obsessed with Blue Dragons sweet chilli sauce after getting sent some for this job. I am putting it on everything.

      That sweet chilli is so addictive, I really have to be careful with it!!
