Fascinating how several Mediterranean countries serve similar dishes in many different guises.
One example is the dish of prawns with chili.
Portugal: Camarões com Piri-Piri
Spain: Gambas Pil-Pil
France: Crevettes au Piment
Italy: Gamberi al pepe
Algerian: Crevettes bil Felfel
The word Felfel is the common denominator. Arabic in origin it spread to Andalucia and the rest of Europe.
10 peeled raw prawns
1 red chili
1 garlic clove, chopped
1tsp of paprika
Heat the oil in a frying pan. Saute the prawns for a couple of minutes, then add the garlic, paprika and chilli. Cook until the prawns turn pink. Place in a hot terracotta dish and serve immediately.
