I know, I said “The Best” Peanut Satay Sauce…bold statement right? But I feel confident in my statement here and this is literally the best Peanut Satay Sauce I have made to date.

I’ve made probably about a million variations of this sauce but this one is by far my favourite. It’s sweet but tangy, with just a hint of heat and I no joke, would eat it with cardboard if it came down to it…no shame!

I’ll also let you in on an embarrassing truth about getting to this recipe and one of the ingredients it has been missing. I can’t even believe I missed something so simple but so critical to the success of this little sauce…hot water. Are you questioning my Food Blogging Credentials? Cooking is forever about learning and mistakes happen right? Please agree and make me feel better about it…

In the 3 days since discovering this magical sauce, I’ve used it in 3 different dishes, and I know thats just the tip of the ice berg when thinking about the possible pairings for it. I’ve made a quick and easy ramen noodle dish with chopped veggies and Ginger Sesame Meatballs {coming up}, Veggie Collard Wraps, and Stuffed Purple Sweet Potatoes. Also perfectly delicious eaten straight up with a spoon…so I’ve heard 😉

  • 1/3 Cup + 1 Tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter {I used Skippy – Unsweetened, Unsalted}
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Tamari
  • 1/2 Tsp of Sriracha
  • 1/4 Tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1/4 Tsp Garlic Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp of Hot Water {This will make it thicker (good for dipping) But you can add more if you want more of a sauce}
  • Chopped Peanuts and Sliced Green Onion to Garnish (Optional)


  1. In a kettle or pot, heat water
  2. Add all other ingredients to a small bowl
  3. Add in water and whisk until smooth sauce is formed

If making ahead – peanut sauce may become less creamy {especially if refrigerated} just add a touch of hot water again and stir to revive!
