5 Days of Dinners! Pt.2


My boyfriend is Portuguese, and the dinners at his families house are always so delicious. One Portuguese dish that is served, and my favorite is called Shrimp Mozambique.

I couldn’t find all of the ingredients I needed in the store, but for what should be in your cupboards, here is my recipe!

For 2 servings:

•Thaw 20 large peeled shrimp overnight
•Heat pan on medium heat
•Melt 1/2 stick of butter
•Dice up a tsp of garlic and simmer
•Add 2 tbsp of lemon juice or squeeze 2 fresh lemons into pan
•Shake some hot sauce in, about 4 tbsp
•Add 1 cup of water
•Add 1/2 tbsp of vegetable broth
•Bring to a boil
•Rinse shrimp, add to pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on med-low heat

Serve with fresh corn (boil corn in a pot for 5 minutes) and dip some pada (bread) in the yummy sauce
