Peri Peri Sauce recipe

Hi,

I'm trying to find a recipe for a good Peri Peri sauce similar to the stuff you get at Nandos. The stuff you buy in bottles from the supermarkets just doesn't taste the same!

My kids love the stuff and I'd really like to be able to make it at home. Also do they use this same sauce as marinade on their chickens?

Any help appreciated.

Re: Peri Peri Sauce recipe

I'm a massive fan of nandos.. i used to go about 2/3 times a week yikes which cost me a fortune lol.. i have tried the marinades from the supermarkets and you are right that they dont taste the same. depending on flavour you have. The hot marinade tastes similar to what they use in nandos, but the do not sell the medium sauce which sucks a little :\ they dont use the sauce as a marianade, the marianade has some different ingredients. I'm sure ive seen it somewhere but not 100% where tho...

Re: Peri Peri Sauce recipe

The Food Lovers Guide did a segment years ago about piri piri sauce, and I am pretty sure it was with the guy who started Nando's. I looked up and found this, but I am not sure if it is the same one. Should be close though!

Re: Peri Peri Sauce recipe

Here is one which we have been using. Works great but it has a shelf life of around 6 weeks and flavour will peak after 1 week.

For Garlic Peri-Peri sauce:
16 tablespoons of olive oil (regular) or vegetable oil.
5 tablespoons of garlic power
3 lemons - squeeze the juice out.
2 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tablespoon of cider vinegar
12-18 thai chilli - cut up (medium heat; 24 up for high heat)

For Garlic, Herb & Lemon:
Add the following:
1 tablespoon of green parsley (optional)
1 tablespoon of green coriander (optional)

Mix up the above and put into a blender. Blend until completely liquidised. Add the optional item if you are wanting the Nando's Lemon & Herb; .

Pour into a bottle and refrigerate.

Perfect as a marinade or a nandos replacement sauce. Results are guaranteed to please peri-peri affectionados.

Re: Peri Peri Sauce recipe

Although there isnt one specific and unique recipe for piri piri the most common is indeed as shown in Joy's link. Link that by the way mentions piri piri as being part of portuguese cuisine. In my opinion thats not 100% correct cause piri piri was "made" by people in the former portuguese colonies, mainly in Africa.
With that in mind I think that the recipe posted above isnt quite piri piri. I dont doubt that is a good recipe but it contains several ingredients that arent a part of portuguese or former portuguese colonies, like paprika, cayenne pepper or cider vinegar.
Also as an advice I dont recommend that olive oil is used caused after a while it gets smelly. I dont know the word in english but its a smell thats the consequence of the oxidation of the grease contained in the olive oil which is caused by a biochemical reaction between grease and oxygen which creates a change in the long chain of fatty acids.
Sorry if this is too technical but I also used olive oil the first time I made piri piri and after a while I got that awful result.
Nowadays I use veg oil.
