Peanut Sauce

By • August 25, 2010 • 5 Comments



Author Notes: I first used a version of this with chicken satay...then figured out that it is good on anything! Lemon or orange juice can be substituted for the lime juice. More juice can be added to make a salad dressing as well. If you like garlic...it is a nice addition—especially if you serve it with anything grilled. Enjoy! - chinapanschinapans

Food52 Review: Chinapans has created an Asian-style peanut sauce that is, without question, better than any I've ever tried. Is it the lime juice? Is it the perfect ratio of salty, sour, hot and sweet? I made it using brown rice vinegar (because I prefer its nuttier taste), and have put it on everything in sight, including—but not limited to—pan-fried fish, a bowl of brown rice with leftover cooked vegetables and, for breakfast, some steel cut oats! I made a second batch, using lemon juice and substituting tahini for half of the peanut butter. Yummmm! - AntoniaJamesA&M

Your simple flavors are terrific and the reduced sodium level compared to commercial is another "plus".
