Recipe by realbirdlady

Simple spicy seafood from Mozambique. Serve with rice and lemon quarters for garnish. Adapted from "The Africa Cookbook".

Top Review by Katanashrp delicious. I used one long hot chili and added a bit of parsley. I emulsified it in a blender and then then marinated the shrimp in room temperature for about half an hour. It smelled really good while grilling, and it tasted equally good. Thank you.
