I saw many recipes online use peanut butter as an ingredient to make spicy peanut sauce. However, I’m not a big fan of peanut butter, and I personally feel that using the real stuff makes a lot of difference. This is the dipping sauce for my Thai Sate Chicken, and the base sauce for my Spicy Peanut Sauce Pasta with Shrimp.
Adjust to your level of spiciness by increasing or reducing the amount of red curry paste.
