Peanut Sauce Recipe

Peanut sauce

Our peanut sauce recipe makes the perfect topping for your favorite crepe recipes.

Try it drizzled over chicken or pork satay wrapped inside our savory scallion crepes!

This peanut dipping works best with any Asian type of crepes, the one I present below is the Thai Pork Satay. You may only know it as a skewer, but let me tell you, wrapped in a crepe it's even more delicious.

Off course the peanut sauce goes well with most pork or chicken recipes.


  • ½ cup of smooth peanut butter
  • ⅔ cup of chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp of light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp of fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tbsp of lime juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp of soy or Thai fish sauce
  • unsalted peanuts for garnish

Whisk all ingredients together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Let simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Yield: 1 cup of sauce

Now that your sauce is made, it's time to make your crepes. To continue the Asian theme, we recommend scallion crepes.

How to Make Scallion Crepes

Scallion Crepes

To make scallion crepes, simply add 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh scallions to our basic crepe recipe.

The scallion adds some spice to your crepe batter and also some color. Because we put the chopped scallions right into the batter, they will make a funny pattern of little green pieces.

Coarsely chop or purée the mixture in your blender.

Next, make your crepes by following our 6 easy steps in How to Make Crepes.

Thai Pork Satay

Now, fill crepes with broiled pork tenderloin (as pictured), chicken or vegetable fillings.

Finally, drizzle with your sauce, peanuts, and extra scallions for garnish.

You'll love the delicious blend of sweet and savory flavors in this Asian-French dish!
