Chilled Maine Shrimp with Cabbage & Peanuts, Vietnamese-Style

This Vietnamese-inspired shrimp salad is perfect if you’re looking for something different to bring to a summer potluck or a light dish for warm-weather entertaining at home. This recipe calls for Asian hot chile sauce. The different styles and brands of sauce have varying heat levels, so taste as you go. Recipe adapted from The Summer Shack Cookbook by Jasper White (W.W. Norton, 2007).

Indonesian Beef Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Popular throughout Southeast Asia and Indonesia, satay is strips of skewered, grilled meat eaten with a fragrant dipping sauce. Here we serve seasoned marinated steak with a spicy peanut sauce for dipping. A simple cucumber salad is a cooling counterpoint to the beef satay.

Farmers' Market Fried Rice

This fried rice recipe features a fall mixture of sliced Brussels sprouts and parsnips, but feel free to use whatever is fresh and in season. This recipe works best in a wok— a skillet is too small for the volume of food and requires more oil to prevent sticking. Always use cold cooked rice, otherwise the fried rice will be gummy and sticky.

Sweet & Sour Pork

Pineapple, tomato and pork combine in a sweet-tangy sauce in this easy, bright- flavored sweet and sour pork stir-fry. This dish does have a fair amount of acid (from vinegar, tomatoes and pineapple), which can affect the patina of your wok. So remove the food from the wok as soon as you’re done cooking, and if your wok shows any signs of rusting, reseason it (see Tips).

Stir-Fried Celery with Peanuts

Prep all the ingredients before you begin the celery stir-fry—once the skillet is hot, the dish cooks in minutes. Cut zest from the orange with a vegetable peeler before you juice it.

Make a flavorful dinner, dessert or snack with our healthy peanut recipes, recipes with peanut butter and peanut oil recipes.

Peanuts, peanut butter and peanut oil add flavor to many dinners, desserts and snacks, but peanuts also add nutritional value to your sweet and savory dishes. Peanuts are rich in healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats and high in protein, magnesium and fiber. You can add chopped peanuts or peanut butter to sauces and stir-fries, as well as use peanuts and peanut butter in baking. Try one of our healthy peanut recipes today, such as Chile-Lime Peanuts for a spicy peanut snack or Spicy Stir-Fried Broccoli & Peanuts for a healthy side dish recipe with peanuts.
