Sauce - Mombasa Peri Peri - Ukuva iAfrica
Peri Peri is several layers of red chilli on a flavour base of lemon and garlic with black pepper and parsley in the background: it is one of the iconic flavours of the east coast of Africa...
Fans of Peri Peri are completely divided - some say it is hot - on the warm side, but not quite extra-hot, and some say it is moderately warm, on the way to hot.
Peri Peri is made for flame grilled chicken and prawns. Paint a little sauce onto chicken half an hour before flame-grilling (for prawns, grill immediately). Sprinkle a little more Peri Peri before serving with rice and a tomato and onion salad (or a grated green mango salad).
Nice to know: Ukuva is a brand of Turqle Trading that has been exporting South African made Fair Trade foods since 1997.
