2. Rissóis de Camarão | Portuguese Shrimp Dumplings

While dinner cooks on the grill, pass a plate of crisp Portuguese shrimp dumplings. Enveloped in a warm Béchamel, the sweet shrimp pop with flavor beneath the satisfying crunch of the crust.

3. Clams with Grilled Chorizo & Charred Tomatoes

4. Piri-Piri Chicken

Marinate a butterflied chicken in a fiery blend of piri-piri sauce and aromatics, then lay it on the grill! Off the heat, drizzle it with a spicy garlic butter glaze to add a bit more pizzazz to your blackened buddy.
