Hi greetings from Portugal. Gave this a try as I like things pretty spicy, I just added 3 garlic cloves and grinded them with sea salt, then added too the rest of the ingredients. Its was perfect. You can come and B.Q. at my house anytime, just as long as you brings the sauce, and don't forget the garlic!!! LOL LOL! Thanks for posting this receipe.

Spicy hot! I liked it, but it was pretty hot for me. My hubby LOVED it, and suggests using it on other things as well. We basted it on chicken breasts on the grill. What was left over I boiled, then froze for future use. It's a keeper. Made for ZWT8

This recipe was nice and spicy and the flavors really came through on the chicken. We grilled a whole chicken, basting it in this marinade. It is hot, which we like, so if you like things less spicy, you may wish to adjust ingredient amounts. As rusticgirl suggested, we used red wine vinegar. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT7

Excellent. I grew up using piri piri (Portuguese family), so it's nice to have a homemade recipe that rocks. I add tons more garlic, and I use red wine vinegar. Different vinegars give slightly different flavours, so use whatever you've got in the pantry and experiment :)

This makes a very good sauce. I'd never had piri-piri sauce so i wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I used this for Roast Pork With Piri Piri and it worked wonderfully. Thanks for posting!

Really enjoyed this sauce. I was making a trio of chicken sauces for lunch today. DH grilled chicken breasts for two of the sauces & I put chicken breasts cut into strips into a 9x9 baking dish, brushed with this sauce & baked at 350 for about 20 minutes, turning & basting again halfway through. The chicken was so tender & the sauce just delicious! Not too spicy at all unless you dipped the bites into it on the side, which I did but not DH or DS. I also drizzled it over white rice & enjoyed it very much that way also. Super easy to make & I can't wait to try marinating meat in it. Thanks for posting, Dreamer!

This was great! I actually used it for Roast Pork With Piri Piri and also plan to use it for grilling chicken since I have plenty left over. Made for the Epicurean Queens, ZWT5: Family Picks.

As Mia #3 suggested, I also added garlic. I marinated chicken wings in this sauce for a little while, then grilled them. Delicious! I will be enjoying this again! Made for ZWT5.
