Peri-Peri Sauce

La Jolla Cooks 4 U chef and founder Jodi Abel traveled to South Africa and brought back this authentic peri-peri sauce recipe. “Whether you grill or pan sear, it’s the perfect sauce for marinating fish, calamari or chicken,” Jodi says.

Peri-Peri Sauce

3 fresh chili peppers (jalapeño, poblano or similar, chopped)
1⁄2 c. fresh lemon or lime juice
1⁄2 c. Italian parsley, chopped
2 t. minced garlic
1 t. fresh ginger
3⁄4 c. olive oil
2 t. paprika
1 t. sea salt
2 T. dried oregano
1⁄2 t. cayenne

Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until well combined. Adjust ingredients to taste. Marinate chicken, fish or calamari for a few hours before grilling.
