Peanut Dipping Sauce: Light, Hot, Sweet and Salty

I find a good sauce can dress up any salad, plain chicken, fish or anything.
I’m partial to strongly flavored sauces and this little experiment worked well.
Not totally Primal because of the use of PB2 (I’m not sure) but I wanted to keep the calories low.

Peanut Dipping Sauce: Light, Hot, Sweet and Salty
Makes 2 servings
2 T PB2 peanut powder
3 T water
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced very fine
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes or thinly sliced chili pepper of your choice
1 T coconut aminos or San J gluten free tamari sauce
1 tsp Red Boat fish sauce
a few drops stevia
2 sprigs fresh cilantro, finely chopped (optional)
1 green onion, green part very thinly sliced (optional)

Mix the PB2 and water and set aside.
In a small saucepan (or microwave bowl), heat the oil, ginger, garlic and pepper flakes until fragrant.
Mix everything except the cilantro and onion together, let cool.
Taste and add salt if needed.
Mix the cilantro and onion in at the last minute, if using.
You can thin this with 1 tsp vinegar if you prefer it thinner and tangier.
