Peanut Dipping Sauce
Hot Sweet-and-Sour Peanut Sauce
(Gourmet, March 1989)
Makes 2/3 cup
4 T. peanut butter
4 T. soy sauce
2-3 T. fresh lemon juice (1 whole lemon, squeezed)
1 T. brown sugar
1 1/2 t. cayenne or to taste
In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients.
It takes a while to get it smooth -- so keep whisking.
Taste and adjust.
I added more lemon juice to make the sauce smoother and brighter. Tom wanted more cayenne because he likes it hot.
This is the bottled dipping sauce we have been buying. The homemade version is better -- if you have time and energy to make it.
