Five (5) – Minute Peanut Butter Sauce

by on June 20, 2015
 

Quick and easy and ohhhhhhhhhhhhh so good. Think as a dip, dressing for salads especially noodle salads and suya ones and honestly, licking out of a jar and the base of a sauce (cf. Peanut Butter Chicken).

You need a few ingredients, notable amongst which is hot water. Yes hot water. That’s the ‘everything’ of this. Well, and peanut butter yes but hot water is the magic.

It’s what melts the ball of nutty butter, what draws out the citrus oils from the lime zest and lifts the flavours of sesame.

And yes, a jar. And then, you’re ready to rock and rule the world.
