Milk Street Recipe

Spicy Portuguese Shrimp with Garlic (Shrimp Mozambique)

25 minutes

This is our take on camarão a moçambique, or shrimp Mozambique. Despite the name, the dish is in fact Portuguese—Mozambique was once a Portuguese colony and the source of the piri piri chilies traditionally used to spice up the shrimp. For our version, we opted to use an easier-to-find fresh Fresno chili combined with sweet paprika to add color and mild heat.

  • pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails removed, patted dry

  • 1

    teaspoon sweet paprika

  1. 01
    In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp with the paprika, ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
