Portugal: Piri-Piri Sauce
hot chili peppers
Pour the oil into a small, screw-top jar and add the chilli peppers, bay leaf and lemon rind.
Screw on the top and shake. Leave to stand in a warm place for at least 24 hours before use.
It will keep at room temperature indefinitely.
Ready made piri-piri can be bought by the portuguese, who use it a good deal as a spicy condiment on pasta, fish or meat and also to flavour stews.
