Garlic Peanut Sauce

Cuisine: Japanese
Type: Chicken
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 tablespoon 15mlButter
1   Garlic clove - crushed
2   Shallots - diced finely
1/4   Warm water
2 tablespoons 30mlSoy sauce
5 tablespoons 75mlSmooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon 5mlGrated ginger
  Hot chili sauce - to taste

Recipe Instructions

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the shallots and garlic. Cook until soft, but not brown. Pour in the water, soy sauce, peanut butter and ginger. Bring to a boil and season with hot chili sauce. Simmer until desired thickness is reached.


I like three cloves of garlic in this myself, and probably a couple tablespoons of chili sauce (enough to make it noticeable :). It gets reasonably thick in 5-10 minutes, and can sit happily for a while after, and reheats nicely the next day in the microwave.
