Coconut Chile Sauce

Just four ingredients combine to form a tasty, mellow sauce that has intriguing hints of sweetness and spice. For a change of pace, substitute 1/2 tablespoon Thai red curry paste for the chile paste. This velvety sauce partners beautifully with our Coconut-Crusted Salmon, Shanghai Broccoli, salmon cakes, grilled fish or scallops.
