½cupcreamy peanut butter
1tablespoonseasoned rice wine vinegar
3tablespoonsdark brown sugar
1teaspoonred curry paste
2teaspoonsfreshly grated garlic
1teaspoonfresh grated ginger
½teaspoonsriracha hot sauce
¼ to ½cupcoconut milk
Lightly salted peanuts,chopped, for optional garnish
Add the creamy peanut butter, soy sauce, seasoned rice vinegar, dark brown sugar, sesame oil, red curry paste, freshly grated garlic, freshly grated ginger, and sriracha hot sauce in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk until the sauce is smooth, and all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
Add the coconut milk, starting with ¼ cup, and whisk until fully incorporated. Test your sauce for desired consistency. If you want a thinner sauce, you will add additional coconut milk (1 tablespoon at a time) up to a total of ½ cup.
Use the sauce immediately or transfer the peanut sauce to a lidded jar for refrigerated storage.
This sauce has a mild heat level from the sriracha. You can adjust the heat level according to your preferences by adding more sriracha hot sauce. I suggest adding ½ teaspoon at a time until the desired heat level is reached.
To ensure a smooth and creamy texture, consider gently warming the peanut butter before whisking it with the other ingredients. This helps it blend seamlessly.
