Easy Peanut Sauce
This no-cook quick and easy peanut sauce takes just minutes to make and tastes heavenly.
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.
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 peanut sauce is used as a topping on “Nut-Crusted Coconut Chicken“.
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.
Creamy peanut butter, ginger root, Hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame seed oil, sugar and red pepper flakes
A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.
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 peanut butter…
…and the hoisin sauce.
Then add the red pepper flakes…
…the soy sauce…
…and sesame seed oil.
…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.
…each and every…
A must try.
