Piri-piri

Piri  

Piri-piri is the hot seasoning oil of Portugal, with as many variations as there are housewives. It is added to all manner of meat and fish dishes, soups, sauces, marinades, and stews, but it is fiery and to be used with caution. Prepared in advance, piri-piri will keep under refrigeration for months.

  • 1/4 cup fresh hot chili peppers
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup olive oil

Coarsely chop the peppers, discarding the tops. Thoroughly wash hands, knife and cutting board afterwards.

Combine peppers, salt, garlic, and oil in a glass bottle. Cover tightly, refrigerate. Use as needed.
