Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

This all-purpose condiment is a great way to add a splash of Thai flavour to a salad or vegetable dish. The secret to its exotic flavour is its perfect balance of sweet, sour, salty and spicy.



2 cups smooth peanut butter
4 limes, zest and juice
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon chili flakes or hot sauce
a large bunch mint
a handful or two peanuts


Toss everything into your food processor or blender, then purée until almost smooth, leaving the peanuts a touch chunky. Some blenders are stronger than others; if yours needs a little help, add a splash of water to help it purée to a thick peanut butter consistency.

If you like the strong flavour of fresh cilantro, use it to replace some or all of the mint. For even more authentic Thai flavour, add a splash of Thai fish sauce.
