In a 2-quart bowl blend the canned tomato sauce, lemon juice, chopped white onions, garlic powder and crushed red pepper. Keep refrigerated in covered container. Serve as a relish sauce in a bowl. When used with seafood add 1/4 cup grated horseradish. An excellent cocktail sauce.
Add 2 oz. (1/4 cup) dry red wine for a gourmet sauce for bland meats. Add 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh tomatoes as they do in some parts of Africa.

Pilli-pilli is the little red hot pepper of Africa which is so important an accompaniment to the food in most of its countries. It is much like the crushed red pepper used on pizza and other continental dishes. Some would find it impossible to use the quantities the Africans do â?" but used with discretion or not, it adds zing to many main dishes. Although we have toned it down by the addition of tomato sauce, lemon juice, and onion, it is still necessary to use with care. In the Portuguese colonies of Africa the red hot pepper is called Piri-piri and it is blended with lemon only.
In the Malagasy Republic it is known as Sacha andit is blended with oil.
