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!
