I followed suggestions made by LitleLisa1 and DREGINEK and the results pleasantly surprised me. I used: 1/2 cup hot chicken broth instead of water, dark soy sauce, about a tsp of Cayenne pepper instead of chili sauce (and a few pinches of red pepper flakes), a few dashes of Thai Fish Sauce, a tiny dash of Dashi-no-moto, a dash of cinnamon, 1 tbsp. lemon juice (I consider this ingredient necessary), and had no cilantro though will use it next time. Also I used a mini food processor to roughly chop the peanuts for garnish. I had heavy cream on hand but next time I will definitely use either half&half or milk as the heavy cream was very heavy. And with regular peanut butter the sauce definitely has enough fat!
ALSO I Pan-fried/sauteed Haddock loins in some peanut oil and a little of the peanut sauce, and then added some fresh broccoli florets and chopped carrot and let them simmer but it's crucial the veggies stay a little crunchy to offset the soft texture of the noodles and sauce. I used the 8.8oz package of Eden Udon noodles.
