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.

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.
