Satay skewers , a word from China that is translated as “stacked three times” and hence each skewer (traditionally made of bamboo wood) carries three pieces of meat or fish, is a very popular appetizer at Thai parties, Malaysia, China and Indonesia, and whose origins some claim to be in Sumatra or Java and others in China.
There is a similar recipe in Japan called yakitori. Although the recipe may vary depending on which country or region we try it, the base does not change excessively and is recognized not only for its flavor but also for the characteristic color of meat or fish after being marinated with turmeric and curry, among other spices.

Despite having a large number of ingredients, it is a very simple recipe to prepare.
