Sounds like a great combo of flavours, but this isn't Molho de Piri Piri. Portuguese cuisine never uses oregano and vinegar (preferably red wine vinegar) is a non-negotiable component. The habanero's are a nice touch (I love them!) but again, not traditional to Portuguese cuisine.

Fantastic! I put this on some Chicken Breasts and let it marinade for a few hours and then grilled on the BBQ. it was great. very tasty, spicy but not overly spicy. Used Orange Habeneros (removed the seeds and the ribs but used 5 entire peppers) going to be making this again! Also very good to take to work the next day, I made a few extra for our lunches and it was great. PS: followed recipe as is and it was perfect

Just love this sauce - can be enhanced with a large dash of worcester sauce and, for the brave amongst you, you can also add a few drops of Tabasco sauce and 1 ground clove. Hot!

No stars just yet-I made the mistake of trying to do too many things at once and had to make a few substitutions due to lack of ingredients. I had purchased 4 habeneros, but when I cut in to them, all but 2 were moldy!! So I used two of them and a fairly goodsized jalapeno. I added the maximum garlic listed, lemon juice, salt, a dried italian seasoning instead of just oregano and 4 tbs olive oil. I also add 1/4 of a small onion. I was suprised at the consistency, but I'm thinking that was my fault because I changed a few of the ingredients...but I have to say that even though my chicken thighs only marinated for 15 minutes, they were so tender and so juicy. I'll try again with the correct ingredients and come back and rate with stars. Thanks!

Oh my! OH MY! This is good! I used Moroccan peppers instead of habaneros, and since they're a bit milder I used around 7 of them instead of the 4-5 called for in the recipe. I bunged the whole thing in the food processed and whizzed away! I know this is supposed to be a marinade, and I plan on using it this evening for some chicken breasts I plan to grill, but we were eating some fish last night (Nile Perch) and I used this as a condiment. As I said before, OH MY! I may be making this by the bucketful in the near future. Thanks!
