Boka Dushi (Dutch West Indian Chicken Kebabs)

Randy Mayor; Jan Gautro

This is the Dutch West Indian version of the classic Indonesian saté. Boka means "mouth" and dushi means "sweet" in Papamiento, the musical dialect that blends Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, and West African languages. Kejap manis, the ancestor of modern ketchup, is a thick, sweet soy sauce; you can substitute equal parts soy sauce and molasses. Sambal ulek is a fiery paste made of red peppers. Look for both in Asian markets.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 3 kebabs and 2 tablespoons dutch west indian peanut sauce)
