Our tiny red PERi-PERi chillies are unique to Nando’s. Our heart and our heat, they’re a very special type of African Bird’s Eye chilli.
We mix our fiery little guys with onion, oil, herbs, fresh lemons and a kick of garlic to make our very own unique PERi-PERi sauce, bastes and marinades. Only with these fresh ingredients does the powerful flavour of PERi-PERi (that tantalises your taste buds) come to life.
Flavour first, heat second
Our PERi-PERi sauces, bastes and marinades deliver flavour first, heat second. They all have a citrus note, a tease of heat and a hint of earthiness. Our sauces’ flavours build and subside rather than the ‘all out burn’ of other chilli sauces. They come in a range of flavours and heat levels, which we rate on our PERi-ometer to cater for everyone’s tastes.
Hand-picked and sun-dried
Each chilli plant produces about 300 chillies, which are hand-picked and plucked one at a time. Then they’re hand-sorted and naturally dried in the African sun.
