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.
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.
