1 fresh peri peri pepper, de-seeded (or keep the seeds for extra heat) & finely minced
1/2 tsp Spanish paprika
1/2 tsp ground coriander
Juice of 1 lime
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil (Spanish olive oil if available)
Ground black pepper, to taste

In a small bowl, combine the peri peri pepper, paprika, coriander, garlic and lime juice. Whisk in the olive oil, combining thoroughly, and season with salt and black pepper to taste.
Can't find fresh peri-peri peppers, or don't have the time to make the marinade from scratch? Then try Nando's Peri-Peri Barbecue Marinade, an authentic peri-peri pepper marinade from South Africa that's based on a colonial Portuguese recipe. Nando's also makes delicious peri peri hot sauces.
