Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce - The Lemon Bowl

As you’ve probably gathered by now, we eat some form of Asian food every single week. I love using basic Asian pantry ingredients to transport my plate to the other side of the world and bring back childhood memories.

Vietnamese Fresh Rolls with BBQ Pork Meatballs - The Lemon Bowl

Growing up, my dad would take me and my sisters out for “Sushi Saturday” every weekend. Sunday dinner often took place at a local Vietnamese restaurant where I learned how to roll my own bbq pork fresh rolls at the age of 12. And a visit to Berkeley to see my dad’s side of the family was never complete without a trip to dim sum in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

Whether it’s a quick stir-fry, summery fresh rolls or a crunchy cabbage slaw, the flavors and versatility of Asian food is limitless.

Tandoori Grilled Chicken - The Lemon Bowl

If you’ve ever ordered tandoori grilled chicken, you’re probably familiar with some form of peanut dipping sauce. You know what I’m talking about – that dish on the side that is creamy, sweet, sour and nutty. I could drink it with a straw which is why I couldn’t wait to recreate it at home with Silk Unsweetened Coconutmilk.

    1. Aww thank you so much Natasha. I wasn’t planning to eat it like that but in the summer months I end up always coming up with new ways to eat all of the fresh produce. :) Enjoy!

  1. I crave Asian food. I definitely eat it once a week and more. It’s good I have on the West coast, because there is plethora of Asian food available. Yes! This sauce looks soooo good. I pinned it. I do not want to lose track of it.
