Sweet and Spicy Peanut Sauce (Satay sauce)

I have been a fan of Satay sauce since my trip to Thailand in 2018 and I feel I can eat that sauce with almost anything, Salads, Skewers, Wraps & Rolls, Sandwiches etc.

So this is my version of a quick under 5 mins Satay sauce that is sweet, spicy and has Peanut Butter!! Yes, now you know what I’m saying…..

Served it with some Vietnamese Veg Wraps and made myself a delightful, no cooking, healthy lunch

This dip is great because:

– Needs only 5 mins
– Pantry Friendly
– Stores well
– Goes with almost anything
– Incredibly delicious

To make a medium bowl of this lush, flavourful dip

You’ll need:

2 cloves of minced garlic

1 tbsp soy sauce

1/4th tsp each of salt, pepper and sugar and extra to taste

1/4th cup unsweetened peanut butter (smooth or crunchy your choice)

1 tbsp chilli garlic sauce or Sriracha sauce

½ tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp olive/sesame oil

½ tsp sesame seeds – optional


Mix together minced garlic, soy sauce, salt, pepper and sugar with a whisk

Now add chilli garlic sauce, peanut butter, lemon juice and whisk vigorously to combine

Now add oil and whisk together to form a homogeneous mixture

(If your sauce feels too thick, you can add a few tbsps of hot water, one tbsp at a time)

Garnish with sesame seeds and enjoy with Spring rolls, sandwiches or top your favorite salad!
