This looks super good - from Williams-Sonoma, this sauce can be used to dip spring rolls, dumplings and other Asian appetizers.
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil. When it is hot, add the garlic and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 30 seconds.
- Add the hoisin sauce, fish sauce, sugar and chili paste, stir well and simmer for 15 seconds. Stir in the chicken broth; the mixture should have a thick, creamy consistency. Add the peanuts.
- Let cool and serve!
