Oh...nevermind...I "foodnetworked" it...and Emeril has a recipe for Piri piri.

Piri Piri

Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2004

Prep Time:
10 min
Inactive Prep Time:
30 min
Cook Time:
5 min

Level:
Easy

Serves:
3/4 cup

Ingredients

* 1 tablespoon, plus 1/2 cup olive oil
* 5 cloves garlic, smashed
* 4 cayenne chile peppers, stemmed, ribs and seeds removed, and rough chopped (or substitute other hot red peppers)
* 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
* 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

Heat a small saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to the pan. Once the oil is hot, add the garlic and peppers to the pan. Saute, stirring often, until the edges of the garlic start to turn brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the lemon juice to the pan, and remove from the heat.

Place the contents of the saute pan in a blender and add the salt. Puree the peppers and garlic in the blender until mostly smooth. Drizzle the remaining 1/2 cup of olive oil through the feed tube of the lid of the blender. Let cool before using, and store refrigerated in an airtight container.

I've heard of piri piri only on this site, maybe a rundown of what it is and if it can be made, a list of ingredients?
