Peanut Sauce - Southeast Asian

Peanut Sauce - Southeast Asian

This dressing makes a good topping over a crisp vegetable salad such as Indonesian Gado Gado Salad, and can be used as a dipping sauce for satays and appetizers. For a thinner salad dressing, just add a bit more coconut milk or chicken broth. To thicken, let the sauce sit and cool before using.


  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon red curry paste or chili paste
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce


In a small saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a boil.

Stir in the remaining ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes, until the peanut butter has melted and the mixture is thickened.

Serve hot, or cool and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Re-heat before reusing.

Yield: 1 Cup
