"This recipe is taken from Emeril Lagasse's book - 'From Emeril's Kitchen'. The preface to the recipe states "This spicy Portuguese sauce is an awesome addition to any dish. Serve it as a condiment for seasoning soups or other pasta dishes to totally kick them up." The Portuguese had a huge influence on African cooking. Posted for ZWT. *Cooking time includes storage/wait time in fridge.*"

"My DH LOVES this stuff! We waited the 7 days before trying it and he says it keeps getting better. I did not strain it after pureeing, I tried but it looked mostly like oil. Made for ZWT8."
"This is some SPICY stuff! I am a big fan of bold flavors though so was happy. I elected to skip straining so my sauce was slightly chunky (and green). I brushed the sauce lightly on pork and veggie kabobs and then grilled on a contact grill. served additional sauce for dipping. Thank you for sharing the recipe!"
"Mmmm mmmmm...the 7 day marinating time is well worth the wait! Once the marinade sat for the 7 days, I marinated boneless, skinless chicken breasts in it. I grilled the chicken breasts and served it alongside a salad and bread. It was sooooo good! Spicy but not too spicy. My whole family enjoyed it. Made for the Pick A Pepper Challenge of Spain for ZWT8. Thanks!"
"Wow, is this stuff potent!!! At first, you get the pepper "flavor" and then it hits the back of your tongue and throat with the "heat". It's actually a little addicting once you get accustomed to it. I will probably do as the other reviewer suggested and add some of it to a citrus marinade or other marinade ingredients, but you could definitely use it alone if you like a nice spicy sauce. Made for the Pick-A-Pepper challenge - ZWT-8-Spain/Portugal."
"This is a great sauce to have on hand. I used it on some shrimp i bbq'd"
"Very delicious sauce. I decided to use as a marinade for chicken since it had all these great flavors and spices. I added some fresh squeezed orange juice for a little acid. I always have these ingredients on hand so I will def make and use again for other things. DH gave it 15 stars lol. Thanks Made for ZWT 5 :)"
