This is an easy to make version of Thai peanut sauce which uses ingredients that most everyone has on hand. It's great with grilled shrimp or fish.

I love anything thai! i used this recipe as a guide, but i had to substitute stuff I didnt have. I used 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, and I ommitted the lemon juice and sherry and used 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar to get the sour tang. I also used honey instead of corn syrup. (better for you in my opinion) because I ommitted so much mine was pretty thick so it needed extra water. I also like super spicy so I added a teaspoon of hot curry in addition to the cayenne. Yummy! Great over rice noodles! Read More

I made this with chicken satay. It was VERY good and just spicy enough. I didn't have sherry so I used white cooking wine. I was glad that I used low sodium soy sauce because it might have been salty otherwise. I also added a little bit of coconut milk as I had some on hand. My boyfriend said of the meal: this doesn't taste like something you eat at home! I would have paid money for it too! So totally delicious. Thanks for sharing! EDIT: I now make this with cream of coconut instead of corn syrup. It is delicious! Read More

This was wonderful! I followed it almost to the T-had to use honey as I didn't have any corn syrup on hand. I didn't measure the peanut butter because I made as a "bottom of the jar" sauce. Fabulous! Thanks for this recipe. Read More

Awesome! It is quick and easy and tastes great not too sweet not too spicy. I used crunchy peanut butter to give it more texture then poured it over a shrimp stir fry. Left my hubby licking the bowl. And as far as overpowering goes; if you don't want a lot of flavor don't cook Thai. Read More
