I followed the recipe exactly and it came out too thick,salty, and without enough kick but I think it gave me a good base. I fixed it by adding a can of coconut milk, 1/3 of a cup of sugar and half a bottle of sriracha chili sauce. That made it just what I was looking for :)

Loved this recipe, made a salad and used this for a love gift to my daughter in law that was having chemo and was having a hard time with food. She ate this with gusto and so did everyone else. I use it often.

I wish I had read the other reviews, they were spot on. Way too thick with no taste. Added a whole can of lite thai coconut milk and 2 T red curry paste. Then put into blender, helped the taste a lot.

When I mixed the ingredients and put it in the microwave, it was a paste, not a sauce- basically like dark peanut butter. I had to thin it out before I could use it. I will not be using this recipe again. I tried to eat it (and I hate wasting food) but it is just not appetizing.

It is thick, salty and not at all a sauce. Just like the other reviews say, it is basically bad tasting peanut butter
