Shrimp Piri-piri

I don't remember where I found this recipe, but it is very good. Don't serve it to people who don't like spicy food.

Serves 6
3-1/2"red hot chile peppers, seeded & minced (Bird's eye peppers or sub 1 jalapeƱo)
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 sticks butter
1 Tbl paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/3 C fresh lime juice
3 1/4 lb.s shrimp, shelled
1/4 C fresh cilantro, chopped

Saffron rice

Chop chiles & garlic in food processor. Add butter, spices, & 2 tbls lime juice.
Mix well. Arrange shrimp in large skillet in 1 layer and sprinkle with remaining lime juice. Spread butter mixture over the shrimp and let stand 5 minutes. Cook on top of the stove until shrimp is just done, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with rice.
