Môlho de Piri Piri (Portuguese Hot Sauce)

Wednesday, 18 November 2009

Description

Early in the sixteenth century, chiles were transferred from Portuguese 
Brazil to their colony of Angola. These small, piquin-like chiles (which
were probably Brazilian malaguetas) were called piri-piri
(pepper-pepper) and became an integral part of the local cuisine. The
sauce made from them was transferred back to Portugual, where it is a
staple on dining tables--served with seafood, soups, and stews. Since
the piri-piri chiles are not usually available, use chiles de árbol,
cayenne chiles, chile piquins, or chiltepíns. Note: This recipe requires
advance preparation.
