Prepare the Piri-Piri…

“Chilli-Heads like nothing better than to get together and share their passion for all things hot”

-Chilli World


This is a vibrant Piri-Piri sauce and the flavours remind me of my holidays in Portugal.


Time to roast!


Oh yum….


  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 6 fresh red chillies
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 tsp seaflakes
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • ½ tbsp paprika
  • 100ml Olive oil
  • 50ml red wine vinegar


Cool and peel the peppers in a fridge bag; is so much easier!


Chop and put them in a pan.


 Blitz and blend!


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas 4.
  2. Place the chillies, pepper and garlic on a roasting tray, drizzle with oil and roast them for 25 minutes.
  3. Cool and roughly chop, add salt, oregano, paprika, olive oil and vinegar in a saucepan, and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Allow the mixture to cool, then blitz with a hand blender.


Store in an airtight container, until ready to use.

This is a mouth-watering marinade for my Piri-Piri Chicken.


You will have guessed by now, that I am a chilli lover and I’m happy to share the passion!

P.S…You are free to add as many chillies as you can handle,

Frances 😘
