Instructions Checklist
  • In a small saute pan, heat oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute, or until lightly golden brown. Add red pepper flakes and saute for a few seconds. Stir in hoisin sauce, peanut butter and water, and reduce 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. Let the sauce cool to room temperature.
