Magical Peruvian Green Sauce "Huacatay" Recipe

keithlca | Apr 15, 200804:06 PM     72

Please help! I have been searching for the Peruvian green sauce ever since I visited several restaurants in the Kendall area in Miami. The green sauce was served with the bread. It is absolutely delicious!

I have found numerous recipes with mayo, lime, jalepeno, lettuce, olive oil, mint and salt. These ingredients are not authentic as Peru does not use jalepeno or mayo in their cooking. I was told the authenic recipe calls for:

Huacatay - Peruvian plant
Aji - Peruvian Spice
Oil
Kosher Salt
Lime

Can anyone verify this recipe? Where can I buy the Huacatay or the Aji? Any help will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!
