This recipe makes just enough creamy, spicy sauce to fill the Shrimp and Jicama Rolls. Double the recipe if you want extra sauce to serve on the side for dipping.

  1. 1/2 cup cooked jasmine rice
  2. 1 tablespoon white or dark miso
  3. 1/4 cup dry-roasted salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  4. 1 small jalapeño, seeded and chopped
  5. 1 garlic clove
  6. 1 tablespoon ketchup
  7. 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  8. 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  9. 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoons Asian chili sauce
  11. 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  12. 1/4 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  13. 1 teaspoon unseasoned rice vinegar
  14. 1/4 cup water, plus more if needed
  1. In a mini food processor, combine the cooked rice with the miso, peanuts, jalapeño, garlic, ketchup, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, granulated sugar, chili sauce, lemon juice, sesame oil and rice vinegar. Process all of these ingredients until just combined. Add 2 tablespoons of the water and process until a coarse paste forms. Add 2 more tablespoons of water and process until the sauce has a smooth consistency similar to mayonnaise. Add more water if the sauce is too thick.
Make Ahead The sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Serve With Shrimp and Jicama Rolls with Chili-Peanut Sauce.
