I've always been such a huge fan of peanut pad thai it's hard to believe that it's taken me this long to
re-create it in my own kitchen. This sauce recipe is great not only in a traditional pad thai dish on a bed of rice noodles, but also as a dipping sauce for veggies, a stir fry sauce, or even as a sauce on a delicious Thai inspired pizza (infact - that's what we had for dinner last night!).
Regardless of what you use this Thai Sauce for, it's a great one to keep in the kitchen!
- 1 tbsp peanut oil
- 1 tbsp red curry paste
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (full fat)
- 2 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 tbsp chili sauce (like sriracha)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 lime, juiced
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat up peanut oil, then add curry paste. Cook for 1-2 minutes, then add peanut butter and coconut milk. Stir until incorporated. Add fish sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar, and lime juice. Once smooth, remove from heat.
Store sauce in fridge - re-heat to use.
