   Substitute chicken, shrimps or beef for the pork, if desired
   
   Make the sauce up to 3 days ahead of time, but grill the satays at the
   last minute.
   
   Soak about 18 bamboo shewers in water for 1 hour. Combine all ingredients
   except meat in food processor or blender and pur‚e.
   
   Place marinade in bowl. Cut pork into 6-inch lengths. Slice each length
   into 1/2-inch long strips and thread onto bamboo skewers. Pour over
   marinade, cover and marinate for 2 hours.
   
   Grill or broil pork for 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
   
   Peanut Lime Dipping Sauce:
   Add peanut butter to a small bowl and slowly whisk in remaining
   ingredients.
   
   Dessert: Cool, sweet and simple, a colourful selection of fresh fruit and
   berries, or of fruit-flavoured sorbets or sherbets, is the perfect finish
   to a midsummer Thai dinner.
