Cambodian Coconut Peanut Sauce Our Latest Release & Collaboration
Cambodian Coconut Peanut Sauce is our latest release and it is so going to blow your mind. We've collaborated on this one with Vermont Peanut Butter Company to source the best USA all natural peanut butter we could find and in addition to making the best peanut butter, they're operations are located just 20 minutes from our kitchen. A double score when we source great ingredients from our local community.
The inspiration behind this sauce came last June while in New York at a street festival. We had the best Cambodian street food drizzled with peanut sauce and topped with fresh basil and lime wedges. We immediately got thinking of how to incorporate something like this into our repertoire.
We wanted to create a peanut sauce that had all the elements that you crave. The sweet, the sour, the full bodied texture, the spice. So we worked out a recipe to create this velvety smooth peanut sauce that incorporates a medley of southeast Asian spices including lemongrass, galangal, coriander, turmeric and chili and blended it with creamy coconut and of course fresh lime to give it that acid balance. When you cook with a sauce or use a sauce as a dipping accent for rice paper rolls, shrimp, chicken satay or whatever, you want their to be an acid level that pulls your palate into that other direction. Without that balance, the taste is overwhelming or flat. So we really focused on the palate balance on this sauce and we think we nailed it. It's just so satisfying.
