Piri Piri Shrimp

It can be difficult to find piri piri peppers in certain parts of the world, but if you're craving this vibrant sauce and can't find the real thing, you can get pretty close with this recipe. Red peppers mimic the lively color, and a habanero will give it some heat. When working with hot pepper make sure to be careful. Use latex gloves if you have them, and if you don't make sure to wash your hands very well after seeding the pepper; be very careful not to touch your face and eyes.
