Annabel Langbein’s Speedy Peanut Sauce


The absolute perfect finishing touch to spice up any meal prep or keep summer meals light and delicious.

“I’m not claiming this recipe is in any way authentic, but having experimented
with all sorts of long-winded alternatives I think it still comes up trumps for flavor.
Use storebought peanut butter or make your own by blending roasted peanuts with
oil and a little salt. Great with chicken or lamb skewers, as a dipping sauce or over Asian salads.” – Annabel Langbein

Prep time 5 mins
Makes about 1 cup

½ cup boiling water
½ cup crunchy salted peanut butter
2 tbsp thai sweet chili sauce
½ tsp chili flakes
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger

Place boiling water and peanut butter in a mixing bowl and stir until smooth. Stir in thai sweet chili sauce, chili flakes, soy sauce and grated ginger. Speedy Peanut Sauce keeps for weeks in the fridge and can be thinned with a little extra water if desired.

This recipe is from Annabel’s TV series Annabel Langbein The Free Range Cook: Simple Pleasures, screening now on PBS. The accompanying book, containing all the recipes from the series, is available on Amazon!
