Hoisin-Peanut Dipping Sauce

This sweet and sour, creamy dipping sauce is great to have around. It's one of my favorites for dipping summer rolls but makes a great dip for veggies and grilled meats or is delicious stirred into noodles.

  • Saucepan


  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup Light Coconut Milk
  • ¼ cup Peanut Butter
  • ¼ cup Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Rice Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha, more or less, to taste (Asian chili sauce)


  • Place a small pan over medium heat. When hot, add the sesame oil and garlic and cook, stirring, just until the garlic softens. Add the coconut milk and cook until it just begins to simmer. Add the remaining ingredients all at once and whisk to combine. Heat, stirring frequently, just until the sauce begins to simmer. Remove from heat and allow to cool before using.


This sauce can be kept in the refrigerator, covered, for a week. It will become more firm when cool so heat it in the microwave until it becomes smooth and creamy, 10-15 seconds, and stir well before using.
