From garden to kitchen: peri peri sauce

Last week we experienced rain like never before. For four days, non-stop torrential rain pelted relentlessly down on Sydney. It was cold and it was wet. And had me craving a hit of chilli with some delicious warming food. So I got down to making a batch of peri peri sauce from scratch with homegrown chillies, lemons and limes for peri peri chicken dinner one night.
Peri Peri sauce

Ingredients

8-10 red chillies, stemmed and roughly chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 cup parsley leaves
3 tablespoons lemon and/or lime juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Salt, to taste

Method

1. Roughly chop chillies, garlic and parsley

2. Add all ingredients to processor and blend until smooth.

3. Pour into container and store in refrigerator for a few hour for flavours to infuse before using.

Yum! What do you typically pour the sauce on? Poultry? Or a warm bowl of noodles, perhaps?

@kidgranny I've only used the sauce with chicken and in burgers but I think will work well with prawns and other meat?

Oh dear! This looks stunning! Everyone I know who goes to nandos always wants more peri peri sauce! My favorite types of spicy meat sauces always must include onion and garlic besides chilli and a home made one although it seems easy is something I rarely do!
