There is no more rewarding result of stirring a handful of fuss-free ingredients together than this satisfying, mouthwatering peanut sauce. I could honestly just eat it with a spoon, but it is wonderful drizzled over grain or noodle bowls, grilled chicken skewers, and/or steamed vegetables. The sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, just let it come to room temperature before serving it, and stir in a little more lime juice to taste, or water to thin it out a little more if needed.
¼ cup of natural creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 ½ teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger, or ½ teaspoon ground ginger
1 ½ teaspoons honey
1/8 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, plus more to taste
In a medium bowl stir the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, ginger, honey and red pepper flakes and 2 tablespoons of water until well combined and creamy. Add more red pepper flakes to taste.
Sauce will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Allow to come to room temperature before serving.
