Top Rated Malagueta Recipes

If you're making this entire menu in a single oven, we recommend baking the yuca gratin ahead; while it cooks, brown the lamb and coat with the sauce and farofa. When the gratin comes out of the oven, the lamb can go in. (The gratin will stay warm while the lamb bakes and stands.)
Entered for safe-keeping, when I want to cook authentic Portuguese recipes. It differs from Recipe #460610 in that water is not drained off and the seeds are retained to ensure the fire of the chili peppers. Malagueta peppers are longer (riper) than piri piri peppers; they are also known as hot red finger peppers. These peppers keep for at least 6 months, if refrigerated. Per Ana Patuleia Ortins in "Portuguese Homestyle Cooking", some versions of this recipe add a touch of lemon juice or vinegar and garlic, but this simple paste adds heat to adish while allowing you to add lemon or garlic to your taste, depending on the dish. Use either 2 8-ounce jars or 4 4-ounce jars, sterilized for canning/preserving. When adding to a recipe, remember that this is high in salt, so taste the dish before adding any additional salt.
