  1. 3 heaped tbsp smooth peanut butter

  2. 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce

  3. 1/2 tsp chilli flakes

  4. 1 tbsp fish sauce

  5. 200ml coconut milk (half a tin)

  6. 1 tbsp honey

  7. 1/2 tsp ground coriander

  8. Juice of a lime

Place all ingredients except for the lime into a small pan & heat over a medium heat, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon. Initially sauce will appear thin however, persevere & it will soon thicken up. Do not let boil.

Remove from heat & add lime juice.

This is a fantastic sauce for bbq meats & veg. It goes with anything & can be eaten hot or cold. Soooo good!

Give these a whirl & share your meal ideas!
