These are Lourenco Marques Prawns or Prawns Mozambique. Prawns from the waters off Mozambique are famous for the large size and delicious flavor. These are marinated in a peri-peri marinade and grilled. Post for ZWT #4.
- Mix all ingredients except prawns. Pour half of mixture into another bowl to reserve for use as a sauce. Marinate prawns with rest of mixture for at least a few hours or longer. (Be careful not to get hot pepper mixture in your eyes).
- Remove prawns and set aside. Pour the used marinade into a pan and quickly bring to a boil on the stove.
- Thread the prawns on skewers. Cook over hot grill, turning once and basting with the cooked marinade until pink and done,.
- Serve immediately with the reserved sauce for dipping.
These are very good. I tripled the recipe to make enough for a main dish and we loved these. I used the red pepper flakes option and followed as directed. These shrimp are spicy, but were a nice light diner alongside a baked potato and side salad. Thanks for a new spicy shrimp recipe for the grill! Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook Tag.
These were so full of flavor. I used a dash of cayenne pepper in place of the chiles and it worked fine and I also didn't need any dipping sauce as they were very juicy. These will be made again. Thanks :) Made for ZWT7 Golden Gourmets.
Perfect prawns, and as other reviewers mentioned the kick of the red chili flakes was outstanding. I could of easily popped this right into my mouth (all of them!) but didn't, just loved this great dish. I left some for dipping, how wonderful! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 7
