  • 1/4 cup unsweetened peanut butter
  • 3 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon canned full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon red curry paste
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons water


  • Place all of the ingredients into a small bowl.
  • With a spoon or small whisk stir until well combined. 


  • I used unsweetened peanut butter for this recipe. I don't like to use conventional peanut butter as it makes the sauce too sweet. 
  • If you're allergic to peanuts, you could use almond butter or sunflower butter instead of peanut butter. It will change the taste of this recipe, but it will still be really good, just different. 
  • For a gluten-free version, replace the soy sauce with tamari.
