Peanut Sauce Recipe Ingredients

This peanut sauce recipe is inspired by Indonesian and Thai peanut sauces, but is by no means intended to be an authentic version of these sauces.often served as a dipping sauce satay, Thai peanut sauce starts with whole peanuts, rather than the peanut butter used here.you can check this out Thai peanut sauce recipe. for reference!

In contrast, this Americanized sauce is smoother and more flavorful. Here’s what I use to make it:

  • peanut butter – Creamy natural peanut butter works best here. The smoother the better. Try subbing it with almond butter for a fun twist.
  • rice vinegar and lime juice – For a tangy flavor. The tartness of the vinegar cuts through the rich peanut butter nicely, while the lime juice adds a fresh, bright flavor.
  • Sriracha – For heat. Chili garlic sauce fits here too!
  • Tamari – Add saltiness and savory flavor. If you don’t have tamari on hand, add soy sauce. If you need this recipe to be gluten-free, look for certified gluten-free Tamarind.
  • toasted sesame oil – for nutty richness.
  • Maple syrup – A rich, spicy and flavorful sauce that goes well with its sweetness.
  • ginger – Add a refreshing kick.
  • and water – Dilute the sauce to your desired consistency.
