Camaro Grelhado com Mohlo Cru

Camaro Grelhado com Mohlo Cru translates to grilled prawns with raw sauce. It is a traditonal dish of Angola. This can be servered as a starter or a main course. I want it for lunch so also cook Arzo verde or “green rice”.

To make the Camaro Grelhado com Mohlo Cru I add the ingredents to the blender.

Marinate the shrimp.

The next step is to thread and BBQ the shrimp. I don’t have a BBQ, so I could use a broiler, but instead I decided to saute the shrimp in the marinade.

Arroz verde is equally as simple to make. Saute the rice:

Saute vegetables with the rice and then cook.

The result is good. The shrimp are good with a strong green onion flavor. They seem to be lacking spice, however I did pick this so that it had no spice. The rice was also good, but I thought there would be a stronger cilantro flavor and I think it needed more.
