Portuguese hot red pepper sauce (pimenta moida) is used throughout Portugal, although it is most typically seen in the Azores. It's a great marinade for meats and other things as it adds flavor and some heat.

- Place the chopped peppers and salt in a blender and blend until it is smooth and of even consistency.
- Place the mixture in a saucepan and let it cook on medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes.
- Stir in the vinegar and olive oil well and then pour into the jar for storage.
- Place it the refrigerator and use it as you need.
The authentic pimenta moida also has minced garlic added. I am from the Acores and we do not cook the pimenta but we add lots of salt and let it sit for a few days with only the salt and garlic. We then jar it.
