Recipe of the Moment - Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce

This was another piece of our appetizer dinner last weekend. My parents had these frozen breaded shrimp that are perfect for an easy appetizer, but I wanted to make some sort of dipping sauce to go with them. A little snooping around online got me to this recipe. I adapted it slightly for what we had on hand, and it worked out beautifully.

The peanut butter/soy sauce/lime mixture was perfect, and really easy to make since you just stick it in a blender. And paired with the shrimp, it made a perfect appetizer. Thinned out with a little fish stock, this could also make a great sauce for rice noodles or for an asian casserole. I'd eat pretty much anything dipped in this stuff. Mmm mmm mm.

Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken stock
3 T soy sauce
1 1/2 T brown sugar
2 T lime juice
1 1/2 T minced ginger (we used jarred, and it was just fine)

1 t minced garlic
1/2 t chili flakes
1 shallot, chopped

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth
2. If desired, serve with chopped cilantro on top

Sauce will keep 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator
