Sate Lilit is a satay variant from Balinese cuisine. This satay is made from minced pork,fish,chicken,beef,or even turtle meat, which is then mixed with grated coconut, thick coconut milk, lemon juice, shallots, and pepper. The specied minced meat is wound around bamboo,sugar cane or lemongrass sticks, it is then grilled on charcoal. Unlike skewers of other satay recipes which is made narrow and sharp,the bamboo skewer of sate lilis is flat and wide. this wider surface allowed the minced meat to stick and settle. The term lilit in Balinese and indonesian means “to wrap around”, which corresponds to its making method to wrapping around instead of skewering the meat.
