Description

The Malagueta pepper (Capsicum frutescens) is one of the most widely used hot peppers in Brazil, Portugal and Mozambique. It is a small, tapered, green pepper that turns red as it matures at about 5 cm. It is a very hot pepper, with a range of 60,000 to 100,000 Scoville units (about the same as Tabasco peppers).

 

There are two sizes seen in markets, which sometimes have different names: Malaguetinha refers to smaller versions of these peppers (younger peppers), and is common in Brazil. In Mozambique and Portugal, the same small pepper goes by Piri Piri, the Swahili word for ‘pepper pepper’. The larger ones are called Malaguetão in Brazil and Malagueta in Portugal.

 

This pepper is used to season many regional dishes and sauces in Brazil and Mozambique. In Portugal, it is mainly used to season poultry dishes.
