Hike Portugal? Thanks… I think I will!

Piri piri - Portugal's answer to Sriracha!

Piri piri is a Portuguese hot sauce that is winning fans around the planet. The heat source is the Malagueta hot pepper that thrives in East Africa, and traveled the globe with the Portuguese: from South Africa to Goa, from Brazil to Madeira. Try it on grilled meats, salads, or with cheese - it is the right mix of heat and flavor.


Piri piri is from the Swahili for 'pepper pepper’ - and it is called peri-peri in South Africa, where Nando’s Peri-Peri is a popular Portuguese grilled chicken eatery.


Piri piri sauce, very popular in Portugal, is often made from crushed chilies, citrus peel, onion, garlic, pepper, salt, lemon juice, bay leaves, colorau, basil, oregano, and tarragon.
