Super Easylicious Peanut Sauce

Super Easylicious Peanut Sauce

This super easy and delicious recipe for peanut sauce takes no time to make and is 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-frys.



1 cup
  1. 1/2 cup Hoisin sauce
  2. 1/4 cup peanut butter
  3. 2 Tablespoons water
  4. 1 Tablespoon lime or lemon juice
  5. 2-3 Tablespoons minced onion OR 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  6. 1 Tablespoon sriracha (or sambal oelek or chili garlic paste)
  7. optional: chopped fresh chilies to taste (I used Thai chilies today)
  8. optional: chopped roasted peanuts, if you've got 'em
