While visiting Hawaii, I was exposed to so many exotic fruits, but also a lot of meats that I do not eat… I ended up cooking a lot in our time share, which resulted in this Exotic Fusion of flavors that are to die for! Im obsessed!

I’ve made them with 3 different fillings, but I’m going to share my 2 favorite!

Exotic Thai Sauce:

  • 1/2 Cup Creamy or Chunky Almond Butter (or Peanut/Cashew)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil (or Avocado/Vegetable Oil)
  • 4 teaspoons of Spicy Sesame Oil (use plain to avoid heat)
  • 2 Tablespoons Tamari

  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Nectar (or Agave nectar/Maple Syrup)
  • 3 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar (or White Vinegar)

  2. Plain Sesame Oil works well if you are serving kids.
  3. Start with 1 Garlic Clove then add more if desired.
  4. Although Tamari & Soy Sauce are similar, I add both!
  5. Play with consistency by adding a tsp. water or more of each flavor.
