Thai Peanut Sauce

User Rating 2.5 Star Rating (17 Reviews)


Thai Peanut Sauce

Macaroni and peanut sauce!

A basic Thai peanut sauce can be used for dozens of things. I like to use it as a salad dressing, to dip spring rolls in or as a sauce for noodles. This basic recipe isn't too spicy, so kids will especially love the peanutbuttery taste. You might also want to try this spicier Thai peanut sauce recipe or a Thai peanut sauce with ginger.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced and crushed
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar


Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over low heat (mixture will become easy to combine as peanut butter melts). Continue stirring over low heat until ingredients are combined and mixture is smooth and creamy. This recipe is perfect as it is, but you may want to thin it out a bit with more water, depending on what you're using it for.

Thai Peanut Sauce-Thumbs Up!, Guest ZoeL

I just made a batch of this sauce. It used a bit too much soy sauce for me, so will use less next time. It is delicious and could become addictive. It will be great tomorrow as a sauce over rice and vegetables.
