Peanut Sauce

All, Sauces

This recipe is based on a widely-used Thai sauce. When you taste it, you’ll know why it’s so popular. Of course it’s good served with oriental food, such as Chicken in Lettuce Cups. I think you’ll also use it as a dipping sauce for appetizers and chips.

This is a quick and easy sauce to make, and requires no cooking.


1/2 cup peanut butter
4 tablespoons hot water
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon MSG (optional)
1 teaspoon cayenne
4 teaspoons bottled plum sauce
1 teaspoon Sriracha rooster sauce
1 green onion (optional)


Combine the hot water and peanut butter and stir with a fork until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until blended. Taste and adjust seasonings to your own taste. Garnish with chopped green onion, if desired.
