Introduction

The Peri Peri Sauce is a classic hot sauce that goes with basically any protein. Despite it being quite hot it still has a great balance with the sweet and sour taste of the bell peppers and lemon juice. It is very simple to make and you literally just need to add everything into a blender!

It can be universally used, it even works as a marinade for meat. You can adjust the amount of chili if you like it more or less spicy, it should have a nice spicy punch at the end though.
