"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."

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

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.
