Prepared as as in the recipe. There was WAY too heavy of a concentration of red pepper flakes - 1 tbsp is just too much for a recipe this size. It overpowers the other flavors. All in all, things were pretty good, but I've had much better Shrimp Mozambique. Next time, I'd probably cut this down to a teaspoon.<br/><br/>A Portugese friend also assures me that lemon is commonly used in this dish. Next time I try making Shrimp Mozambique, I'll definitely try something else.

This is not traditional Portuguese shrimp Mozambique. I don't know what this is, but it's not good

Way too spicy. I never imagined it would be this hot. Next time, ill try beer and lemon and less crushed red pepper...

Very easy to make, flavorful, nice and spicy. We enjoyed this for dinner last night over jasmine rice. In our house, this served 2. Thanks for posting.

Thought I rated this, but guess it didn't go through. This is delicious. I added saffron to my rice, so it was a nice yellow color. Also used wine and saffron in the dish....loved the crushed red pepper flakes! Thanks so much for sharing. Made for ZWT7.

This was really a big hit in our house! I was a little nervous with the amount of red pepper flakes but I followed the recipe exactly, using 1/2 cup white wine and Sazon Goya. Surprisingly, this was not overly spicy but very flavorful and delicious. I served this over brown rice. The color is also quite impressive. Thanks for sharing this easy meal. Made for ZWT 7.

WOW, tremendous depth of rich flavor. I replaced the wine with chicken stock simply because I don't care for the taste of wine in my food, just a personal thing. Loved the saffron and chili flakes. I'd skip the added butter at the end next time because it really added more than was needed. Simple and quick to make and even my DH liked it! *faint*. Just a great dish that I will happily make again. Made for ZWT 7.

YUM! We absolutely loved this! I made it exactly as written (except we served it with saffron rice instead of white rice), and the flavours were amazing! I knew this was going to be good, but I never expected it to be this good! Our favourite meal from the ZWT7 so far! Made for ZWT7 - Africa.

I am not sure what we did wrong, but this did not work for us. The directions did not say where to put in the white wine, so i put it in with all the other liquid ingredients. It also did not say to boil & simmer off the alcohol. We did this, and still the taste afterwards was all hot with not much else going on, and we really really like hot. So sorry this did not work out for us, but I am glad so many other people liked it. We dumped out the sauce and ate the shrimp with white wine, butter & basil sauce.
