Breaking the Rules… Again

Chicken satay is supposed to be on skewers. And I’m pretty sure you shouldn’t be using something called “Pig Pollen” as a base spice for it, either. At least half were flavored in a (more-or-less) traditional manner…

And yes, that grill was very clean before I started. Looks like I get to do that over again soon. The more-or-less traditional satay were those in the back. I didn’t have enough spice mix to cover all of the chicken, so I reached in the cupboard and pulled out some Big Butz Pig Pollen. Some that had been hanging around since the test-batch days. It still smelled ok, so on the chicken it went. Once done, the chicken ended up on a plate with more jicama salad and some green bush-looking things.

The jicama salad was made properly with fresh pineapple and without all the extra stuff I had to add yesterday for flavor. The acidity of the pineapple combined with the sesame-ginger dressing provides plenty of bite and sweetness all on its own.

We won’t mention that the recipe calls for green bell peppers and not red ones…
