We love these delicious chicken satay skewers from Norman Musa's Amazing Malaysian – they're the perfect appetiser when served with peanut sauce, cucumber wedges, red onion slices and cubes of pressed rice. The marinade is wonderfully easy to make and gives the chicken a smoky caramelized flavour with a hint of lemongrass, cumin and turmeric. An ideal party dish and a fantastic weekend treat.
Scallops on the Shell: I can't quite believe how simple yet luscious these are. I prefer to get my scallops from the fishmonger for this, which is just as well as I don't think I could ever get a supermarket to supply me with shells.
