Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

Recipe by  

"This peanut sauce is very flavorful, with lemon, ginger, and quite a bit of heat. It's good with satays, stir-frys, rice bowls, or good as a dip. Don't be afraid to add more or less of the spices, just add to taste! Store in the fridge up to one week."

I'm giving this five stars although I didn't have any hoisin sauce and subbed some curry powder. Will use the hoisin next time. Was good eats.

I added a lot more peanut butter, because I wanted the flavor and also thought the sauce looked too thin. But it thickened up well and was delicious and quick!

This was exactly what I was looking for. It was delicious! I gave 4 stars because after making this according to directions, I felt it needed a bit of fish sauce. After a healthy squirt it was a 5.

Very tangy. Not really hot. The rest if the flavors overpowered the peanut flavor.
