Piri Piri / Peri Peri / Peli Peli Cooking Sauce

November 10th, 2008 · No Comments · Amazon

peri periNo matter how you spell it, here’s a delicious treat for all you cooks out there.

Nando’s is the name of a famous Portuguese chicken restaurant chain (it actually originated in South Africa) which now has 700 restaurants all over Africa, Europe, Australia and Canada.

Nando’s Peri-Peri Pepper Sauce is the chain’s signature sauce, based on the Piri Piri chili pepper (the word is Swahili for “birds eye”, because the pepper is that small).  The sauce is spicy yet tremendously flavorful, with a tantalizing mix of lemon, herbs, and spices. In parts of Portugal and Africa, it has become as popular as ketchup. It’s won many awards for its flavor and spiciness.

The cooking sauce can be used as a marinade for chicken, vegetables, and fish, and even contains high levels of Vitamin C and is a source for Vitamin A, B1, B3, and B12, as well as minerals. You might also enjoy the world famous Hot Peri-Peri Sauce

It’s probably going to be a while before a Nando’s will open in the United States, but you can get a taste (literally) by buying their signature sauce at Amazon. And a portion of all proceeds go to help buy mosquito nets to help prevent malaria in Africa!
