Portuguese Fresh Tuna (Sauce and Marinade)

Family Recipe, a staple once a year when fresh tuna was available in my area. It's pretty spicy, so it is generally served with boiled potatoes which are perfect for soaking up the sauce. The sauce is awesome and stands up to the very meaty fish.

Hi Michelle :-) I'm not Scotty, but I found pimenta moida for you. It's crushed red peppers. Not the dried pepper flakes, though. Here's a picture ****

Yep, that's the stuff. I think it translates moist peppers. has it as well. Both of those places are in my home town, so you will get exactly the stuff. Back to trying to fix the site, at least people can still post.

Hi. Not Scotty, and seems you have your ? answered. If you need an alternative, or want to make this soon, semi-puree very hot (comparable to Tabasco heat level) fresh red chilies. If you only have dry red flakes, try re-hydrating them in a little hot water, then semi-pureeing. The flavor won't be the same as the Malagueta pepper Scotty used; I've had to substitute "Chile Pequin" when making my Portuguese "Piri-piri" (AKA "Peri-Peri") marinades & sauces; have made that successfully with the dry flakes that have melded their flavor into an oil, vinegar (or lemon juice), & garlic concoction. Thanks to Keri, I also now know where I can get Malagueta!
