Do you enjoy peanut sauce? I sure do! After trying this sauce on pasta quite a few years ago, I decided to learn to make it myself at home! The bold flavors in peanut sauce help to compliment a number of pasta, noodle or quinoa dishes. This delicious peanut sauce can also be served with grilled chicken skewers (commonly called chicken satay).

Guess what? This amazing sauce is TOTALLY EASY to make, so if you can measure and stir, you can make it, too! Here’s how to make this ridiculously easy (but scrumptious) Thai peanut sauce in about 5 minutes:

Make The Thai Peanut Sauce

The ingredients for this sauce are creamy peanut butter, soy sauce, Sriracha, brown sugar, lime juice, garlic, rice wine vinegar, ground ginger, sesame oil, and hot water.

To make the sauce, place all ingredients EXCEPT for the hot water into a medium sized bowl. Set aside the water to add at the end (you will need it hot, but not boiling).

Measure the peanut sauce ingredients into a medium sized bowl.

Stir these ingredients together until they are well blended. The sauce will be fairly thick at this point (sorry about the slightly blurry photo!).

Stir the sauce together, and it will be fairly thick.

Add 1/2 cup of very hot water to the peanut sauce. Stir or whisk the sauce well, until all the ingredients are fully blended. The hot water helps to thin out the thick peanut butter, because that makes the sauce easier to pour or drizzle.

The Thai peanut sauce is ready to use once the water is fully incorporated. Whoo Hoo! You just made peanut sauce! If you take a little taste, you can see just how yummy it tastes. Go on… you know you want to try it, right?

Add hot water and stir until the Thai peanut sauce thins out.

How Can You Use Thai Peanut Sauce?

Adding peanut sauce is often used to bring bold flavors to a variety of dishes. We’ve enjoyed peanut sauce in Thai Quinoa Salad (seen below). Sometimes I alter the sauce recipe a bit, but 99% of the time, this is my “go to” Thai-inspired peanut sauce.

Thai peanut sauce can be added to a quinoa salad for a flavorful dressing.

My absolute FAVORITE way to enjoy Thai peanut sauce is mixed with pasta! In the past I have made Vegetarian Spicy Noodles in Peanut Sauce. I’ve also used a slight variation of peanut sauce in my yummy Thai Chicken Linguini. Both recipes are coated with creamy peanut sauce, and taste delicious!

Thai peanut sauce tastes wonderful, when mixed into cooked pasta.Thai chicken linguini is enhanced by a delicious peanut sauce.

I truly hope you find an opportunity to make this delicious Thai peanut sauce. After mixing it up, it’s all I can do to keep from eating it by the spoonful, because it’s THAT good!
