The Best Peanut Sauce Ever

I grew up eating a lot of raw peanuts and peanut butter and peanut butter was mainly used for culinary in our kitchen. I have made peanut sauce many many times and I thought I would share with you guys this recipe. It is tasty, nutty and silky delicious. The smokiness of the salmon fish and the creamy savoury peanut sauce is a combination to die for. So delicious!!!

What you will need

Peanut Butter

Tomato Paste

Chilli Paste


Vegetable stock

Salt to season

When buying peanut butter make sure it has high amount of Oleic acid fatty acid. This fatty acid is known as a good fat helping to lower the amount of bad cholesterol in the body, while boosting the levels of good cholesterol. But at the same time I eat peanut butter in moderation as too much may cause inflammation.
