Peanut Dipping Sauce
Yield: 1/2 cup Prep 5 mins Cook 5 mins


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Juice of 2 limes

Make It

1. In a small saute pan, heat the oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute, or until lightly golden brown. Add pepper flakes and saute for a few seconds.

2. Stir in hoisin sauce, peanut butter and water, and reduce the heat to medium-low so the sauce simmers gently. Add lime juice and simmer, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.

3. Let the sauce cool to room temperature.
