Garlic peanut sauce

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Butter
1 \N Garlic clove; crushed
2 \N Shallots; diced finely
¼ pint Warm water
2 tablespoons Soy sauce
5 tablespoons Smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon Grated ginger
\N \N Hot chili sauce; to taste

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the shallots and garlic. Cook until soft, but not brown. Pour in the water, soy sauce, peanut butter and ginger. Bring to a boil and season with hot chili sauce. Simmer until desired thickness is reached.


I like three cloves of garlic in this myself, and probably a couple tablespoons of chili sauce (enough to make it noticeable :). It gets reasonably thick in 5-10 minutes, and can sit happily for a while after, and reheats nicely the next day in the microwave.
