As I promised, I am publishing the peanut sauce recipe as a single post.

 

From taco sliders and salads to spring rolls, satay, and even ice-cream (yes, ice-cream!), the peanut sauce and dip brings a delicious palette of taste and oriental flavor.

Sweet, sour, salty, earthy, nutty, zesty, creamy, spicy and crunchy (if you want) – all these umami flavors and delightful textures can be found in the sauce-dip.

Like it more hot? Not a problem, just add more hot chili paste. Out of chili paste? Red pepper flakes, Sriracha sauce or other hot sauce will do the job.

Enjoy some crunchiness? Fine, top the sauce-dip with roasted chopped peanuts or sesame seeds. Not sweet enough? It is easy, a little more honey will help. Allergic to honey? Simply replace it with cane sugar.

So, this is quite simple, as well as quite delicious.
