Thai Peanut Sauce

Presented by Kingfish American Bistro & Wine Bar


32 oz. peanut butter
1/2 cup water, as needed

Asian Vinaigrette:
• 3/4 cup water
• 2 T fish sauce
• 1/3 cup sugar
• 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
• 1 tsp. minced garlic
• 1 tsp. minced ginger
• 1/2 cup soy sauce
• 1/3 cup hoisin sauce

Seasoning Mix:
• 2 cups sake
• 1/2 cup mirin (sweet rice wine)
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup white miso paste


Place all vinaigrette ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Set aside.

Combine seasoning mix ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir vinaigrette into saucepan and return to a boil. Remove pan from heat and whisk in peanut butter. If mixture seems too thick, add up to 1/2 cup water in 2 tablespoon increments.

Toss with cooked noodles, serve as a dip with chicken satay, egg rolls, crudités, or stir into an Asian-style chicken salad presented in lettuce cups.


This generous recipe may be cut in half. However, Thai Peanut Sauce can also be frozen in small portions, making it an easy, go-to favorite.

Yields about 2 quarts
