I am a great lover of chillies. Consequently, I always have at least a few different kinds of hot sauce on the go for the various meals I make. This week I managed to get hold of some Ají Amarillo Paste online and decided to make this Peruvian Green Sauce. It’s really quite excellent – fresh, herby and zingy. Delicious. Do give it a go!
Peruvian Green Sauce (makes 2 x 250ml bottles)
2 finger chillies
1 large bunch of coriander
1/2 cup of basil leaves
2 tbsp ginger and garlic paste or use fresh
4 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
6 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup mayonnaise
2 1/2 tbsp Ají Amarillo Paste (like the one pictured below)
- Put all ingredients except the mayonnaise in a food processor and blitz until smooth.
- Add in the mayonnaise and combine.
- Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
- Store in air tight containers in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy!
Hope that you enjoy this sauce. Please feel free to leave any questions or comments. 😊
