Piri Piri Camarão (Piri Piri Shrimp)

Spicy Portuguese Shrimp, also known as Camarao Mozambique is one of our favorite Portuguese recipes.



Portuguese Shrimp Mozambique is a delicious buttery, garlicky, spicy, stew-like dish. But today we made a different way, more like Gambas al Ajillo style. There is not a right or wrong way; either way, it will be delicious.  



This Easy Peri Peri Shrimp are huge on flavor, tender and ridiculously juicy!
This recipe is delicious and so easy to make that it will quickly become one of your go-to dishes—for both busy weeknights as well as special occasions. 



We enjoyed with creamy polenta and crispy bread, but if you add extra wine or beer then you can enjoy Mozambique style. Pass the cooked rice, you won’t be regret!!



This rustic dish is meant to be eaten with your hands.....and you are encouraged to lick your fingers, get a little messy and feed your special someone. Sounds like the perfect day 😊
