Thai Peanut Sauce

I have tried so many peanut sauces and this one is just perfect. I have served it over chicken breasts, I have tossed it with noodles and have even served it with crackers as an appetizer. It reminds me so of the complimentary Trader Vic’s Peanut butter that they serve you with crackers. This sauce has the same flavor, but just has a different consistency. Very versatile sauce with great flavor.

Thai Peanut Sauce


1 garlic clove grated or 1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
2 T. soy sauce
1 T. fresh lime juice
1 tsp. light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
Chopped candied ginger,or fresh grated ginger to taste


Stir together all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Add water to to the sauce to achieve a pourable consistency if you are using it as a sauce. Use less water when wanting to use this as a dip.

Note : I use Trader Joe’s frozen garlic cubes. They a measured perfectly, and they are easy to use.
