Peanut-Tamarind Sauce

Rated as 4.14 out of 5 Stars

"This is a perfect sauce to pour over fish, chicken, rice and noodle dishes. One of my friends even likes to pour it over waffles, but I don't recommend that, she's a little nutty. It makes a good dip for chicken fingers, shrimp rolls (what can't it do?) I make extra large batches and give some away bottled."

This turned out awesome, but I totally modified it almost beyond recognition based on what I had on hand. I omitted chile pepper and ginger, and substituted szechuan for hoisin, 2% milk for coco...

Flavors didn't seem to meld well--I don't think the tamarind goes well with peanut. It was heavy, which is uncharacteristic of all other good Thai food we have had. I won't make this again.
