Oven baked shrimp in piri-piri butter.Piri-piri sauce is hot sauce made from an African chili pepper. You can substitute it with another hot pepper sauce, being aware that it might not have the same complexity. If substituting, add in increments and adjust the quantity in case the heat level is higher.
