Precious Peri Peri

While many of us associate Peri peri sauce with Nando's it is actually a traditional African sauce made from spicy African Bird’s Eye chilli peppers. These peppers are rich in Vitamin A, B and C, enhance your mood, and increase your metabolic rate. Silk Route Spice Company has five different flavours for your personal preferences, ranging from medium, hot and extra hot to the milder garlic and herb options.
