Recipe Notes

This spicy peanut sauce is perfect to top your Asian food like Quinoa Lettuce Wraps or fried rice dishes. Fresh ground peanut butter is ideal for this recipe: unlike many peanut butters in jars, you don’t get unnecessary salt or sugar – just pure peanut flavor.

"Sauces or peppers that aren't hot are like books that don't entertain (or vice versa)."
