Peri-peri prawns tips

This meal may be readily cooked inside, but if you’re entertaining friends and the weather’s nice, a gas bottle and camping skillet can do the job well. Since the peri-peri sauce needs to rest so the flavours can develop, it’s best to make it during the week. For even more vibrancy, throw in some green peppers and onions with the prawns. You may adjust the heat level to suit the tastes of your visitors.

This recipe for peri-peri prawns is easy and perfect for grilling outside. Fabulous for social gatherings during the weekend.
