Welcome, Bienvenidos!

One of our most popular sauces that we frequently get asked for the recipe for is our Peanut sauce! It typical goes on our chicken skewers, but we have used it with beef satays and it can be used as a base for other sauces made with similar flavors.

As chefs, we sometimes like to complicate and add fancy high priced ingredients to seem like we are earning our paycheck.

Can I tell you, this recipe is really this simple!! And it can be enhanced with other flavors.

I’ll give you both options.

Jimmy T’s Peanut Sauce


• 400 grams smooth peanut butter

• 1/2 cup soy sauce

• 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce

• 1 1/2 cup of water


Place all ingredients in a food processor and spin until smooth.

And thats it . . . honestly.


Now if you want to fancy it up, adding chopped pickled ginger, ginger water, toasted sesame oil.

Finish your presentation with unagi sauce, sweet chili sauce and sesame seeds to make it look 5-Star for your family and friends!!

Enjoy, Pura Vida.

Happy Eating – Chef Jimmy T

As a former chef on a megayacht, Jimmy T’s owner Jimmy Tancrell, often had difficulty finding local suppliers who could provide the foodstuffs and condiments necessary for the gourmet meals expected by his clients. During long days at sea under star-filled skys, the crew and staff would talk about their dreams of ‘life after yachting’.  And for Jimmy Tancrell a dream was born … to provide a service for other ‘yachty’ chefs who were in the same boat as Jimmy so far as the need for adequately stocking their galleys with condiments, spices, good beef, fresh vegetables, fruits and cheeses.

Life after yachting led him to Los Suenos at Herradura on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast where Jimmy had already discovered the year ’round availability of wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables offered on Fridays at Jaco’s Mercado Movil or farmers market. A store became available dockside at Los Suenos and Jimmy T’s Provisions and Gourmet foods opened in May 2007.
