Mozambique Hot Sauce

  • SERVINGS: 3/4 cup
  • FAST

Chef Abraham Conlon learned to make this lemony, sambal oelek-like sauce from a Mozambican chef in Lisbon. Any fresh red chiles will work, but Conlon uses piri piri chiles; small Thai bird chiles are closest in flavor to piri piris and will result in a blazingly hot sauce. (Seed and de-rib some or all of the chiles for a milder version.)

  1. 4 ounces fresh red chiles, such as Thai bird, cayenne, red jalapeño, red serrano and/or piri piri, stemmed and chopped
  2. 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  3. 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  4. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  5. 1 teaspoon sugar
  1. In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients and puree until smooth.
Make Ahead The hot sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
