Grilled bread may seem unusual, but it’s the traditional accompaniment to satay. It provides lovely textural contrast, and it’s really simple. You can serve white rice instead, if you like.

more about:
  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 12 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes and dried

Slice off the crust from the bread and slice the bread into 1-inch cubes. Thread 3 to 4 bread cubes on each skewer. Toast the bread on the grill for a couple of seconds before flipping and turning until the surface is slightly charred. Transfer to a plate and serve.
