Spicy Red Curry Peanut Sauce

This creamy sauce is excellent on chicken, tofu, or even pasta. I even used it in my Spicy Thai Peanut Chicken Spring Roll recipe!

Spicy Red Curry Peanut Sauce
  • 1 tbs peanut oil
  • 4 oz. red curry paste
  • 13.5 oz. light coconut milk
  • ¾ cup peanut butter (chunky or creamy)
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbs. lime juice
  • 2 tbs. fish sauce
  • 2 tbs. ground fresh chili paste
  • 2 tbs. sriracha (or other hot chili sauce)
  • 1 tbs. crushed roasted peanuts
  1. In a large saucepan, heat the peanut oil over medium/high heat. Add the red curry paste and sauté a few minutes until fragrant. Add the coconut milk and whisk until the curry paste is incorporated. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer over a low heat for about 10 minutes.
Be sure to taste the sauce and adjust the ingredients accordingly. Add more chili paste and sriracha for a spicier sauce.
