This sauce is great with any grilled or barbecued foods; a real crowd pleaser for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. It is easy to prepare and can be made well ahead and stored in the fridge until needed. It is also a bit out of the ordinary and a welcome change from the usual shop bought table sauces.
3 large yellow peppers
3 – 4 tablespoons natural yogurt
1 – 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
Cayenne pepper to taste
Lime juice to taste
Halve, deseed and grill the peppers skin side up until black. Place them in a plastic bag for 10 minutes then remove their skins and chop the flesh into rough chunks. Blitz the peppers in a food processor with the yogurt until smooth. For a very smooth finish, pass through a sieve, although this will give the sauce a runnier consistency.
Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the soy sauce. Season with cayenne and lime juice to taste.
