Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

There’s no more excuses for buying store bought peanut sauce! This recipe is not only quick but also extremely budget friendly.

Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce:

1 cup smooth peanut butter

1/4 cup soy sauce ( use low sodium!)

2 teaspoon of red chilli paste ( I used sambal, you can also use sriracha )

2 tablespoons of brown sugar

2 limes, juiced

Lime Rind from the two limes

1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

1/2 cup hot water

1/4 cup chopped peanuts for garnish

 

Combine all the above ingredients (except for the the hot water & the peanuts) together in a blender

While your mixture is blending-add hot water (gradually) from the top of the blender. You probably won’t need the whole 1/2 cup- you are just incoorperating the water until the desired consistency is reached. This sauce is suppose to have a medium thin consistency.

Once made, sprinkle your chopped  1/4 cup of peanuts right into the sauce.

I served this peanut sauce on top of chicken satays at a catering event and they were the perfect appy!

Enjoy!
