The sample bottle of the  Peri Peri marinade used in this recipe was sent to me by African Volcano. The Peri Peri style sauces and marinades  are produced under the brand African Volcano, they have been developed by award-winning Master Chef of Great Britain Grant Hawthorne. I really enjoyed using the marinade in various dishes I created ,the heat was just enough for our palate. Many thanks to Grant for sending me the sample.
NB- This recipe can be made with any seasonal vegetables of choice, the blood orange can be replaced with ordinary orange.
