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.
Peanut sauce is also delicious with skewered grilled chicken and appetizer-size pieces of cooked meat with toothpicks for handling.
It can also be served as a hot or cold sauce to mix with noodles.
And peanut sauce makes a great marinade for meat and cooking sauce with vegetables.
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
HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.
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…
…serve as a dipping sauce with any type of meat.

What a fantastic recipe…I love peanut sauce but have never made my own, delicious!
Except for the Hoisin sauce, mine is fairly similar. Lucky friends! 🙂
Hi Jennifer, yes for sure lucky friends! Have a great day.
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!
Hi Tina, so glad you like it. Have a nice rest of the weekend.
