How to Make It

Stir in 1/2 cup of water and reduce the heat to moderately low. Add the lemon juice and fish sauce and simmer gently for 1 minute. Whisk in the peanut butter and coconut milk and simmer until thickened and flavorful, about 2 minutes. Add the cilantro. taste and add more fish sauce if needed.
