Recipe By:Alessandra
“This is a perfect sauce to pour over fish, chicken, rice and noodle dishes. One of my friends even likes to pour it over waffles, but I don’t recommend that, she’s a little nutty. It makes a good dip for chicken fingers, shrimp rolls (what can’t it do?) I make extra large batches and give some away bottled.”


  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons tamarind pulp
  • 1 small fresh red chile pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 4 teaspoons coconut cream concentrate
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce


  1. Whisk together the chicken stock, peanut butter, tamarind, chile pepper, ginger, garlic, hoisin, fish sauce, coconut cream, and soy sauce in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes more. Serve hot.
