    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.

      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
