Peanut Sauce in Bowls

One of my favorite things to use peanut sauce for is a dipping sauce for fresh spring rolls with shrimp.  They taste so good together.

This is a wonderful sauce for appetizers too because it’s so flavorful.  Skewered grilled chicken topped with drizzles of peanut sauce just before serving taste wonderful, or pieces of cooked meat with toothpicks for handling along with this peanut dipping sauce is scrumptious.

Here’s an example of how peanut sauce can really add flavor to a dish; it’s a recipe where I used this peanut sauce as a topping on “Nut-Crusted Coconut Chicken“.  The combination of flavors with the peanut sauce, chicken and rice was incredibly delicious.

It can also be used as a hot or cold sauce to mix with noodles, a marinade for meat, a cooking sauce with vegetables, or even mixed in with cooked rice.

Let’s check out the ingredients:

Peanut Sauce Ingredients

Creamy peanut butter, ginger root, Hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame seed oil, sugar and red pepper flakes.

Here’s how to make it.

Cut a piece off of the fresh ginger root that is about the size of a sugar cube and cut off the skin.

Dice the flesh as small as possible.  You may need to cut more ginger root if it turns out that the piece you diced is less than a teaspoon.

Add the diced pieces of ginger root to a medium size bowl.

Next add the rice vinegar…

…the sugar…

…the peanut butter…

…and the hoisin sauce.

Then add the red pepper flakes…

…the soy sauce…

…the water…

…and sesame seed oil.

Next…

…whisk all of the ingredients.

Although this sauce can be served chilled, the flavors tend to really stand out if served at room temperature.

Serve as a dipping sauce for spring rolls or any type of meat.

Then enjoy…

…each and every…

…flavorful bite.

A must try.

  1. Well, we did have a fabulous time with you, and the peanut sauce was truly the best I’ve ever tasted. Keep up the good work, friend. Love ya tons!

  2. What a fantastic recipe…I love peanut sauce but have never made my own, delicious!

  3. Except for the Hoisin sauce, mine is fairly similar. Lucky friends! 🙂

  4. Glad to pop in and see this. I love peanut sauce but usually just make it when I make chicken satay. However, now that I see this, it should be a condiment that I keep on hand. It can be used for quite a number of things, not just for satay! Thanks for sharing this an inspiring me to keep this sauce handy-yum!
