I guess it’s safe to say; This sauce is HOT!!! I must admit, peri peri sauce is one of my favorite sauces which comes in handy whenever i need it. It’s a fiery extra hot type of sauce made from a blend of peppers you can find around in local markets around you. As a typical Nigerian who loves hot and spicy food, it’s not unusual to find jars of this extra hot sauce in my house.
I use this for basically almost everything i.e It can be used to marinate chicken (Check out chicken peri peri), beef or fish to give it that indept extra spicy flavor, it can be used as a base for stew or as a quick fix for late night binges…lol. When those late night pangs of hunger hits me up, i’d just head to the kitchen to heat up a portion of the sauce with some extra ingredients if i want, grab slices of bread for dipping into the sauce and munch away. It’s quite similar to ata din din but uniquely different due to the extra ingredients added. The key ingredient in making this sauce is the birds eye chili pepper. I usually add scotch bonnet, red bell pepper and several other types of pepper for that extra spicy kick. You can reduce the hotness of the sauce by thinning it with extra oil or adding extra ingredients like green bell pepper, extra onion on garlic e.t.c. These extra ingredients tend to reduce the hotness of this sauce pretty well. If you’re a lover of everything hot and spicy, then you’re bound to love this spicy hot sauce.
