Things I Love
Saturday, August 9, 2014
I'm always looking for great hot sauces, but this one..... is really wonderful. It's becoming so popular that the hand-made sauce is increasingly hard to find in stores. Fortunately, you can order Piri Piri sauce directly from the maker.
Piri is the swahili word for pepper, in this case, an African bird's eye chili.
Aged in old whisky barrels, Piri Piri is lightly smoky, incredibly complex, with a nice lemony brightness. I end up using it on every savory thing. It's fantastic splashed onto eggs, and stirred into mayonnaise it makes every sandwich better. I love it in black beans. And as a marinade... well, try it for yourself.
