This is a repost of my #2 post of all time, according to Blogger, second only to my post on Gross Candy. I'm not sure what that says about blog readers or googlers but I know this is one recipe you want to make!
My last post was a recipe revealing not only my advanced age but also my un-hip-ness. Granola.
Today, I have a recipe to reestablish my cool. Thai is cool, right?
Don't you love CPK?
If you don't have a California Pizza Kitchen near you, I hope you get a chance to visit one while on vacation. One of our favorite pizzas there is the Thai Chicken. They make a wonderful peanut sauce that they use on that pizza as well as in a salad and a pasta dish.
One year for my birthday I got the cookbook they publish which includes the recipe below. We use it on pasta and pizzas and it makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
Thai Peanut Sauce - CPKPrintable recipe here
½ cup chunky peanut butter
½ cup hoisin sauce
2 Tbl sesame oil
1 Tbl honey
1 Tbl oyster sauce
2 Tbl water
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp dried chili flakes (more or less for heat)
2 tsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp soy sauce
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil, stirring for 1 minute. Serve over pasta with chicken or shrimp and your choice of stir fried vegies. Also use as a pizza sauce, coating chicken as well as pizza crust.
