    joczka's Note:

    Our family vacationed in Mozambique back in the 1960's and my recollection of Prawns Peri Peri was served as 6 deep fried prawns on a bed of savory rice with a side bowl of Peri Peri sauce which was a combination of onions, garlic, chopped tomatoes sauteed in Peri Peri oil.

    1. 1
      Prepare Peri Peri sauce first, by sauteeing onion and garlic in Peri Peri oil until soft, then add diced tomatoes, stir to combine and simmer for 20 minutes on low heat, covered. After 20 minutes adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and keep warm. Reheat rice over a colander of boiling water, adding frozen sweet green peas 5 minutes before service.
    2. 2
      Bring olive oil to a hot smoke temperature and in batches fry the prawns until crisp, but not over done, about 4 minutes. Remove batches to paper towel and keep hot.
    3. 3
      Serve 6 prawns over savory rice per person and pass bowl of Peri Peri sauce to spoon over prawns. Prawns traditionally eaten shell on with fingers, and crispy heads sucked for flavor.

      Your recollection is not 100% correct, but what the heck, we love Mozambique prawns! (I'm in South Africa, with fond memories of large platters of peri-peri prawns eaten in Maputo -- used to be called Louren?o Marques). The peri-peri sauce does not usually contain tomatoes, but I made it your way. We get a genuine peri-peri oil in the shops, which I used, and I also added some of Nando's Garlic Peri-Peri Sauce. (If you can get a Nando's sauce, it's worth it ...) You are of course quite right -- in Moz prawns are never peeled. The rather messy business of eating the prawns is half the fun! Thanks for posting this recipe.
