Mozambican Coconut Piri Piri
Mozambican Coconut Piri Piri captures the essence of Mozambique, an East African coastal nation, whose culinary culture has also been influenced by its Portuguese colonial past. It is inspired by the iconic Piri Piri restaurant in Maputo city, a simple unpretentious eatery which has served locals its signature grilled piri piri chicken for decades.
