Super Easylicious Peanut Sauce

Printable Version (Recipe Only)

Since we're having lettuce wraps tonight, I thought I'd share this super easy and delicious recipe for peanut sauce that takes no time to make and makes a great accompaniment for wraps, summer rolls, crudites, satays, and assorted appetizers like egg rolls and dumplings. 

If thinned down just a bit with a little more citrus and vegetable or toasted sesame oil, it also makes a great dressing for a cold Asian-inspired noodle salad.

Omit the sriracha and chilies, and it's super kid-friendly, too!

If you don't already have Hoisin sauce in your pantry, I would highly recommend it. It's a wonderfully versatile and generally palate friendly condiment that you'll find lots of other delicious uses for including marinades, BBQ sauces and glazes, and stir-fries.

- 1/2 cup Hoisin sauce
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 Tablespoons water
- 1 Tablespoon lime or lemon juice
- 2 to 3 Tablespoons minced onion OR 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 Tablespoon sriracha (or sambal oelek or chili garlic paste)
- optional: chopped fresh chilies to taste (I used Thai chilies today)
- optional: chopped roasted peanuts, if you've got 'em

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until thoroughly combined.

That's it!

Enjoy. :)
