Hi everyone how are you doing? This recipe was inspired by a fellow foodie Funmi. What she did was make fish in spicy sauce.
I liked the look of the sauce because it had a two tone colour or pepper used.just by looking at it. It gave me an idea. Right there and then I decided to make a multicoloured sauce.
I went a bit further by adding extra coloured peppers and also creating a unique range of spice that will bring out the best in the sauce. Trust me it’s well worth it. You have to give it a go. I made lots so I have it saved in my freezer for me to use anytime. When you do make this recipe, please make lots and save, it will do you good 🙂
