We love good restaurants and what we particularly appreciate are the signature dishes of our favourite addresses. Thanks to the generosity of the chefs and restaurateurs who share them with us, we are lucky enough to be able to try them at home. Asian cuisine is extremely popular and any lemongrass grilled meat dish are always appreciated by lovers of good food. One of the staple dishes in this genre is the lemongrass grilled chicken from Satay Brothers restaurant.

Satay Brothers, located in the St. Henri neighbourhood, stands out for its authentic Singaporean-inspired cuisine.

But thanks to the generosity of the Satay Brothers family, you can now make their Lemongrass Grilled Chicken recipe at home! Perfect to savour in a sandwich or on skewers.
