Make this tasty sauce when you're lacking the time and ingredients to make a real satay sauce from scratch. You can rely on it to make a simply prepared tofu dish into a respectable dinner.

3 tablespoons Thai peanut paste
1 teaspoon Thai red chili paste
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 scallion, including half of the greens, thinly sliced

Work the peanut and red chili pastes into the coconut milk until smooth, then heat in a small saucepan until boiling. Turn off the heat and stir in the scallions. Taste and increase the heat if you like by adding more chili paste.
