Peanut Sauce

2 tsp vegetable oil
½ cup finely chopped onion
3 clove garlic, minced
½ c chunky peanut butter
3 Tbsp packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp fish sauce or soy sauce
1 tsp paprika
¼ tsp ground red pepper
1 c unsweetened coconut milk
2 Tbsp lime juice

Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender.

Reduce heat to medium. Add peanut butter, brown sugar, fish sauce, paprika and red pepper; stir until smooth. Slowly stir in coconut
milk until well blended. (At this point, the sauce may be cooled, covered and refrigerated up to 2 days in advance.)
Stir sauce constantly over medium heat until bubbling gently. Stir in lime juice.
