You'll love this very vibrant sauce on prawns. It was a hit at dinner and it's extremely easy to make. You can use it both to marinate and accompany the prawns. Grilling shrimps on skewers seems to be a common way of cooking them in Angola, it works well, specially for turning them, and is very attractive. As is often the case with Angolan food, you can find versions of this recipe throughout the former Portuguese empire.
Camarao Grelhado com Molho Cru
1 lb. prawns 2 cloves garlic, crushed 1/2 cup green onions, including tops, chopped 1 tsp. ground cumin 1/4 tsp. salt 4 tbsp. wine vinegar 4 tbsp. water
Make the sauce by combining all the ingredients and grinding them into a paste. Put the prawns on the skewers and brush with sauce. Grill until done (they should lose their translucent color), about 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve with extra sauce on the side.
