Di's Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce

Big PB Planet thanks to awesome author friend Dianne Ochiltree for this fantastic-sounding recipe for Thai Peanut Sauce! (In an odd cosmic coincidence, this was sent mere hours after I returned home with the takeout Peanut Sauce noodles pictured here! Although, given the amount of PB consumed on my planet, maybe it's not such a coincidence...) Anyway, check out this recipe! And then, check out Dianne's wonderful books and her site's fun Favorite Bedtime Book Contest, too!

Di’s Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce

This simple, no-cook peanut sauce has a spicy Thai taste. Good as a dipping sauce for chicken and/or shrimp cooked on skewers or tossed with cooked & drained wheat or rice noodles for a side dish.


3/4 to 1 1/2 cups creamy PB
1 can coconut milk
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon hot sauce
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

In a large bowl, mix PB, coconut milk, lime juice, soy sauce, hot sauce, ginger and garlic. Mix in the cilantro just before serving.

By the way, that sauce looks yummy!

Hi, Maya! Thanks for dropping by PB Planet, and thanks for sharing your blog! I do indeed love reading, writing, and ratties, and your ratties (past and present) are beautiful! Oh, if only they lived longer, right? (Still hurts...) Please do pursue your ratty-story plans--there's nothing like combining two of your fave interests! While you work on getting your own book in post or print, do check out the marvelous PB, Bad Rats by Eric Drachman (Kidwick Books, 2008), and be sure to get the version with the CD--it is phenomenal! (In fact, I just may have to Spotlight this...) Keep us posted!
