Tenerife seasoning in food

Hey all,

This is going to sound absolutely insane. I am considering going to Madeira. However, I was in Tenerife a few months ago, and apparently they have some unique seasoning in their food that downright disgusted me. I'm talking...worst smell of my life to the point it made me insanely sick. I basically had to forfeit the trip, eat sushi and supermarket pasta, and just tough it out. To this day, I am still disgusted by the thought of it even. Some people close to me looked it up, and apparently it is unique to the islands there.

Given that Madeira is near the Canary Islands, I'm hoping someone can assure me if the same seasoning is so profound in Madeira.

Seasoning? In Portuguese food????
Salt + pepper + olive oil + vinegar. Nothing else, ever. Take it or leave it. :/
You *might* get a few things here and there for this dish or that dish, but it's rare.

For unique Canary seasoning the only thing that comes to mind is mojo picón. But that's just made from garlic, hot pepper, cumin, paprika and vinegar.

In Madeira you're probably only likely to find some peri peri sauce but not everywhere.
