This is a peanuty sauce that goes well with gỏi cuốn (normally insofar as I know, gỏi cuốn are served with a heavy nước lèo sauce, which involves other things. I’m not yet very clear on what yet, research is ongoing). But as a handy replacement, this isn’t half bad. Very very peanuty (the alternate recipe I had for this involved hoisin and was very sweet, but I find the gỏi cuốn go better with peanuty), and the H’s new dipping sauce favourite. Who knew he liked peanuts quite so much…
