Peri Peri Sauce

Peri Peri Sauce

This sauce is traditionally cooked over coals and is named after a peri peri pepper, a small spicy pepper that was very popular with the Portuguese settlers who helped colonize Southern Africa. The sauce is spicy and tangy, and is great as a marinade on chicken or as a lively dip at your next barbecue.
