POSTED FOR ZWT 4: Getting the REAL peri-peri oil recipe is a pain in the backside, and you never really find it. This is the nearest to the real thing, I think, but I don't take responsibility!! You won't have peri-peri peppers, so any hot red peppers, fresh or dried, will do. Ready-made Peri-peri oil can be bought where I am. The longer you can steep this oil, the better! The Moz prawns (shrimps) are large and straight from the ocean, and are only slit through the back shell and the vein removed. Then they're butterflied, brushed well with the oil, and fried or grilled just until they curl up and turn pink. There are other similar recipes. Mozambique prawns are really the only prawns to use! I HAD to guess the weight of the prawns -- use as many as you think you have peri-peri for.
