HOMEMADE THAI PEANUT SAUCE — Coconut milk, peanut butter, curry paste, lime juice and seasonings come together in this flavorful sauce that’s perfect on grilled chicken or your favorite stir-fry.
If you love peanut sauce as much as I do, and you’ve never tried making it yourself, you’ve got to whip up a batch of this Homemade Thai Peanut Sauce as soon as possible!
Peanut sauce is one of my favorite condiments. Honestly I could eat it with a spoon! But it’s also fabulous in stir fries and other Asian noodle dishes. Or stirred into a bowl of ramen. It also makes a great sauce or dip for grilled chicken kabobs or even chicken nuggets.
And peanut sauce makes a great dip for things like spring rolls or fried shrimp. Or grilled shrimp. Or dumplings….okay, I would eat this stuff on pretty much anything.
Plus, it’s so easy to make at home (and can be kept in the refrigerator for about a week) that you may never buy peanut sauce from the store again.
One of the great things about making peanut sauce yourself is that you can control the amount of heat, curry powder, peanut butter, lime juice, etc. So you can make it taste just the way you want!
Basically, you just throw all the ingredients in a blender and puree. Then you add water until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. It really couldn’t be any easier!
I like to store my peanut sauce in a Mason jar in the refrigerator. Then I can just pull it out whenever I’m craving a spoonful. But seriously, it is great for snacking with some fresh veggies or rice crackers–if you’re not into eating it by the spoonful.
If you’ve never made your own peanut sauce–and especially if you’ve never tried peanut sauce–you really must give this Homemade Thai Peanut Sauce a try!
