Sauce

Spicy Peanut Sauce

I admit, I am a fan of spicy and a fan of peanut butter, but the two together and you’ve got a mouthwatering combination. There are so many uses for something like this from dipping sauce for spring rolls, using it as a pasta sauce with some grilled chicken, to dipping sauce for something like chicken satay. The great thing about this is you can also easily adjust the heat level to your liking. If you know that you aren’t a huge spice fan start with less, if you like a lot of spice, start with the recommended amount and you can add from there. We discovered this also makes for an excellent dipping sauce for fresh bell pepper. Oh and is my usual – the picture was taken at night so please forgive the not so pretty picture, but I promise the flavor will knock your socks off. Maybe one of these days I’ll time things better to where it’s still daylight out….that might be some wishful thinking.

Spicy Peanut Sauce

Servings – You’ll have a little over 1/3 of a cup of sauce when all is said and done. With this serving size is relative.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 clove of garlic minced.
  • 2 Tbsp Siracha (if you don’t like super spicy definitely dial back on this, 1 Tbsp might be more reasonable, but we love spicy)
  • 1 tsp Hoison sauce

Directions

  1. Mix all of the above ingredients together. If it seems a little thick, you can add some water to thin it down.
  2. Store up to a week in your refrigerator.
  3. Enjoy!
