This peanut sauce is very flavorful, with lemon, ginger, and quite a bit of heat. It's good with satays, stir-frys, rice bowls, or good as a dip. Don't be afraid to add more or less of the spices, just add to taste! Store in the fridge up to one week.

Very tangy. Not really hot. The rest if the flavors overpowered the peanut flavor.

After making a few changes I loved this sauce! After I made it it really tasted like peanut butter and it was too thick for a dipping sauce. So I added about 3 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar a bit more ginger one more tablespoon of soy sauce and some hot water to thin it out. Had it as a dipping sauce for some Vietnamese salad rolls! It was great.

I'm giving this five stars although I didn't have any hoisin sauce and subbed some curry powder. Will use the hoisin next time. Was good eats.

This was exactly what I was looking for. It was delicious! I gave 4 stars because after making this according to directions I felt it needed a bit of fish sauce. After a healthy squirt it was a 5.

This is so quick and easy and you'll end up eating twice the amount chicken just so you can dip it in it!!!

I added a lot more peanut butter because I wanted the flavor and also thought the sauce looked too thin. But it thickened up well and was delicious and quick!
