Veri Peri is Saucy!I love a good sauce. I have one shelf in my pantry devoted to all the sauces, condiments, marinades and dressings that I find while out shopping. This does not include what is in the fridge etiher. I was recently blessed with the opportunity to try out Veri Peri cooking sauces. Veri Peri is manufactured in South Africa by a company called "All Joy" and is available in five flavors: Lemon and Herb, Garlic, Mild, Hot and Veri Hot. The heat level ranges from 1-10 so there is a sauce here for anyone. All varieties are gluten-free, dairy-free and low carb, and contain the African Bird's Eye Chili.
Mouthwatering would be a accurate description of each variety. These sauces are infused with flavors that compliment just about any dish. The first one I tried was the Lemon and Herb on salmon.
I prefer to grill salmon on the barbeque, however with about 4 inches of snow on the ground, that didn't sound too appealing so I opted to bake my fish. I poured some of the Lemon and Herb over my salmon, added a few capers for that tart taste and wrapped it in foil. Depending on how big your salmon steak is, bake it at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. I use a meat thermometer to ensure it's cooked all the way through and the fish came out moist and delicious. The Lemon and Herb was the right compliment to the salmon. It was not the type of lemon flavor that gives you the sour-face pucker, it did have punch of lemon that was not at all overpowering. I think this sauce would compliment any type of fish, shellfish or chicken. I would love to try it next on shrimp and veggie kabobs... when the snow leaves of course.
The next one I tried was the garlic and as you readers know, I sure do love my garlic. This time I mixed it in my hamburger meat for burger night. My hubby went out in the snow and grilled them for me because as we all know, the best burgers are grilled, not fried. The burger was juicy and had that garlic flavor that I crave. I think this would make a great marinade for steak as well.
Veri Peri is not just for cooking. You can also add Veri Peri to dips to give them a bit of kick or even use it as a marinade for your favorite meat or fish. This sauce is versitile and there is something there for everyone's tast buds.
