This saucy little recipe comes to you from Emerson, one of our awesome friends in Singapore, and the good news it’s amazing with any kind of rice paper roll, whether you serve them fresh or fried.
(Let’s just say pairing it with these little Vietnamese Fried Spring Rolls is a very, very good idea.) 😉
As was the cheeky time-saving idea to buy BBQ pork from the nearby Chinese restaurant to go in our fresh cold rolls.
Hey, if it means dinner is on the table and in our tums that much faster, we are all for it! 😂
Peanut Hoisin Sauce for Rice Paper Rolls
Emerson’s crunchy peanut hoisin sauce is pretty versatile. We’ve found it makes for a deliciously quirky flavour combo with:
- Vietnamese PAPERLESS Spring Rolls (<– seriously, you need to try these) 😲
- Japanese Pork Gyoza
- Thai Spring Rolls
- Vietnamese Banh Xeo (ooooh this recipe is in our ebook 😀 )
Which just goes to show, there’s so much yum out there just waiting for you to make it happen!
Now, just in case there are any leftovers after getting through that list, your homemade peanut hoisin sauce will last for a few days in the fridge.
(But if you’re anything like us, it probably ain’t gonna stick around. 😀 )
P.S. Don’t be afraid to supercharge it with freshly chopped chilli and set all those yummy flavours on fire. Yessssss! 🔥🙌🏻
