Is this Peri-peri seasoning spicy?
The level of spice is completely up to you here! You can change the amount of cayenne pepper in the recipe to suit your family's tastes.
I make this quite mild because guaranteed if I serve spicy food my youngest will stick his tongue out and try and cool it in his water glass, which will lead to my eldest saying "It's not spicy, you are just being silly" and before I know it I have feuding brothers on my hands and spilled water. (anyone else's family dinner go that way? Please??)
The recipe uses cayenne pepper to get its spice, traditionally this would have been ground Piri-Piri pepper. I find this much harder to find so I add cayenne as a substitute.
